Morally corrupt drug pricing policy hurts black LGBTQ community the most

August 19, 2019 / DAVID J. JOHNS

Lowering prescription drug prices was a rallying cry for politicians in last years midterm election, and people came out in droves to support candidates who promised action on this front. Drug pricing, as well as the broader issue of crippling health care costs, cuts across lines that divide liberals and conservatives, millennials and baby boomers. Drug pricing is also particularly important to racial/ethnic and sexual minority communities. While we spend more money on more expensive medicines -- especially considering the disproportionate rates and severity of diseases that we suffer -- our access to them is less guaranteed when compared to our white counterparts.
