The Price of Life in the Name of Globalization
Is there a price for life? If so what is it? The issue here concerns South Africa's growing HIV/AIDS patients. The world non-the-less isn't doing much about the situation that only seems to be getting worse. South Africa already has the highest growing HIV/AIDS rate in the world. The pharmaceutical companies offered very little medical donations or help, they ended up doing quite the opposite. When South Africa attempted to import generic versions of the needed HIV/AIDS drugs because of their drastically cheaper prices the pharmaceutical companies replied by taking them to court. How is this fair? Is this the price the poor, developing nations have to pay because their system abides with international laws and regulations? South Africa's manufacturing or importing of generic AIDS treatment drugs is illegal, non the less it's primary motivation is the protect it's own people from a disease threatening to it's population not because it was pursuing profit.
HIV/AIDS infection rate in South Africa is the highest in the world and thus a serious problem.
