Email your Premier & Health Minister

The email tool below makes it easy for you to support the pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and scleroderma communities by contacting your Premier and Health Minister. Through the letter provided below, you can ask your provincial elected officials to take action to ensure that all patients living with PAH, including those with systemic scleroderma-associated PAH (SSc-PAH), have publicly funded access to optimal treatment for their disease.

This email tool has been recently updated to reflect the current status of access to Uptravi (selexipag) across Canada.

PATIENTS LIVING IN QUEBEC, NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR, SASKATCHEWAN, MANITOBA ALBERTA AND ONTARIO

To date, Uptravi is accessible through public funding in the following provinces: QuebecNewfoundland and Labrador, SaskatchewanManitoba, Alberta and Ontario.

Select Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador, Saskatchewan, Manitoba or Alberta in the email tool below and send a thank you letter to the government for their support in ensuring that Uptravi is accessible through public funding for patients in need.

PATIENTS LIVING IN THE REST OF CANADA

Even though progress is being made, there is still an urgent need to advocate for publicly funded access to Uptravi to ensure all patients in Canada have access to it.

We encourage you to use the updated email tool for the rest of the country to request each remaining province and territory move swiftly to provide immediate publicly funded access to Uptravi.

Even if you’ve sent letters in the past, we encourage you to send this new letter to your provincial decision makers today. And, when your province is next to make Uptravi available through public funding, make sure you come back to send a thank you letter!

Once you have entered your name and email address in the form below and have selected your letter recipient, you may send the letter as-is or customize it. You may add as much detail as you wish and, if applicable, we encourage you to include details of how PAH or SSc-PAH, has personally impacted your life.

The Pulmonary Hypertension Association of Canada (PHA Canada) and Scleroderma Canada (SC) truly appreciates your support.
