Do you think the Australian public deserves to know what's at stake in the TPP - Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement?
CHETRE (Centre for Health Equity Training Research and Evaluation) has worked with a group of Australian academics and non-government organisations, interested in the health of the Australian population, to do a health impact assessment (HIA) on the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement negotiations.
The negotiations are finishing soon, but the public has yet to see the agreement and find out exactly what we risk trading away.
The HIA released today has shown the TPP could impact on the government's ability to introduce new health initiatives, like the plain packaging legislation. It could stop new food labelling laws, and keep medicines costing more for longer.
If you want to tell the government to release the text so we can find out what's in the TPP before it's too late click here .
