Drugs for Developing Countries: Uncharitable Stance From Oxfam
Nature. 1982 Dec 2; 300(5891): 395.
Oxfam, a British charity organization, has charged multinational pharmaceutical manufacturers with encouraging overuse and misuse of drugs in developing countries. The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued a list of "essential" drugs which is being used by Bangladesh to restrict drug sales to only certain products. Despite signs of cooperation between some drug companies and WHO, Oxfam remains skeptical. (KIE abstract)
