Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has…Margaret Mead
I would be interested on their views on Malaria as The National Roll Back Malaria program distributes 23 million nets . The additional costs of using the nets included open sewers, re-selling the nets and electricity. My concern is simply that these announcements are done to fanfare while we barely moved on the core.
Pharmaceutical Medicine is inflated up to 10,000 percent or more for the simple reason that pharmaceutical companies and their lobbyists pay to keep cheaper drugs from our country. They pay lobbyists on both sides of aisle to ensure that their drugs are the only ones that can be sold in this country. If we could get cheaper drugs from alternative sources so that the cost of drugs would immediately deflate and half the health crisis would be solved. It would be a fair competition, as our country is supposed to promote and guarantee.
