Generic meds, license to live ...

India is known as the global medicine production factory. It has a thriving pharmaceutical industry which produces quality medicine at affordable prices. In the face of competition, the big pharmaceutical companies fight back holding a powerful weapon in their hands, the patents, attempting to strike India’s generic drug industry and consolidate their monopoly worldwide.

A battle so important that could threaten the access of billions of poor people around the world to affordable lifesaving drugs.
