HIV/AIDS advocates converge at Cowen Health Care Conference in Boston to expose drugmaker’s piggish practices
BOSTON (March 6, 2023) On Tuesday, March 7th, AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) advocates will rally at the Boston Marriot Copley Place in protest of Gilead Sciences’ ongoing efforts to rack up exorbitant profits while restricting access to lifesaving medications. Tuesday’s action outside the 43rd Annual Cowen Health Care Conference is the latest in a series of escalating efforts by AHF to draw attention to Gilead’s quiet campaign to undermine safety net providers and illegally restrict access to lifesaving HIV and Hepatitis C treatments.
Since 2022, AHF has been taking on Gilead Sciences and CEO Daniel O’Day, holding more than 30 protests in multiple cities, including San Francisco, Washington, DC; Miami, FL; and Foster City, CA at the drugmaker’s corporate headquarters. AHF also is running full-page ads in the San Francisco Chronicle (posted online at Gilead.org).
