About this work

Description

According to leading scientists, millions of children, mainly in Africa, could have been saved if the pharmaceutical industry and the World Health Organisation had collaborated to address the problem of fake drugs. Now signs are emerging that malaria is developing resistance to the one effective drug that can treat it. It's a development which threatens patients all over the world. An W.H.O. report published in 1999 has proved to be largely ineffectual. At times this documentary is highly critical of the lack of co-ordinated effort between big pharmaceutical companies and governments.
