Report finds Big Pharma is doing more for access to medicine in developing countries
Date:11/28/2012

ore than 100 factors covering these areas, including whether they are developing new drugs for neglected diseases, to what extent they facilitate or resist efforts to create generic versions of their drugs, and how they approach pricing in developing countries. Lobbying activities, marketing ethics and product donations and other philanthropic activities are also tracked.

Ranking highlights: Who is doing the most?
