Most expensive medicines in one of the poorest countries
October 18, 2006
The Philippine International Trading Corporation today announced that 1. the Philippines had the most expensive medicines in the world and that 2. Eighty percent of those who are sick cannot afford to purchase medicines because they cost too much.
I am speechless. But that is me. Others are dying, I am afraid, as they cannot afford to purchase medicine for their dearest ones. This is a crime.
