    Typical of all western Pharamceutical companies. Only if they allow India to sell HIV anti retroviral drugs in Africa, we will see a phenomenal reduction in the spread of the disease. When a drug from Indian pharma costs 1 $USD, the western drugs cost in excess of 25$.

    Its too rich for Bill Gates to preach one thing and follow another. Instead of just giving money, he could use his influence to permit WHO to sell Indian drugs all over the world.
