As per the report titled 'Indian Pharma Companies Need To Pass The Trials, But Can They Shape Up?', the rating agency does not expect any let up in the scrutiny of Indian pharma companies by the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA). "These companies will therefore need to strengthen systems and controls to effectively address regulatory issues," the report said. The pricing pressure

World Health Organisation (WHO) chief Margret Chan, on the completion of her decade-long tenure as Director General (DG), welcomed the incoming DG. Most interestingly, new DG Tedros Gheybreysus hails from Ethiopia, and this is for the first time that someone from the African region has been elected since WHO's inception in 1948.

This came in the background that there are trade agreements between countries that will have a perceivable impact on access to medicines as a result of changes in patent and other national laws in different countries. What are these trade laws? How will they impact access to medicines? What does all this mean to a common ...
