Summary
"This investigative documentary argues that Western drug companies are preventing Third World countries from accessing basic medicines through pricing, patenting and trade pressure. The program claims that these companies are the most profitable businesses in the world yet operate on a cut-throat basis. How far will they go to bring a new drug onto the market, and how willing are they to put profit before people? And once a drug is on the market, who decides the price? This documentary investigates the effects of testing and marketing policies on the sick children of the Third World whose lives depend on the supply of essential medicines.
