Millions of people in developing countries do not have access to potentially life-saving medicines because they – or their government – cannot afford them due to the high price of drugs. One of the reasons for high drug prices is patents, which is a right granted to the owner of an invention that prevents others from making, using, importing or selling the invention without permission.

The charitable giving of Andy Murray

10th July, 2013 | By Cause4 staff
