Affaire

Oxfam report says top drug companies focusing on patents, not the poor

In November 2007, Oxfam issued a report, "Investing for life: Meeting  poor people's needs for access to medicines through responsible business practices".  In the report, Oxfam examines the business conduct of 12 pharmaceutical companies with respect to access to medicines for the poor.  The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited all 12 companies to respond to the report.  The results to date are below (any future responses received will be added to this page).

On 6 February 2008 Oxfam sent a rejoinder, commenting on the company responses: "Oxfam rejoinder" [DOC]
