So, what can be done?
Your voice is powerful. Politicians pay close attention to what happens online. Even as we exit the pandemic, representatives and their staff remain connected at almost every hour of the day.
We need to do two things:
- Build a critical mass of support for continued access to biologic drugs to treat Crohn’s or colitis.
- Bring the government back to the table for discussion.
The more people that act right now, the stronger our chances of ensuring that New Scotians aren’t forced to rush through a switch to their critical medications.
“Thousands of Nova Scotians rely on medication every day to manage their Crohn’s or colitis. Switching their treatment could disrupt their health. The government must be patient and do their due diligence to ensure that the non-medical switch policy takes into account the lived reality of Nova Scotians living with Crohn’s or colitis.”
