Every year nine millionpeople are diagnosed with tuberculosis, every day over 13,400 people areinfected with AIDs, and every thirty seconds malaria kills a child. For most ofthe world, critical medications that treat these deadly diseases are scarce,costly, and growing obsolete, as access to first-line drugs remains out ofreach and resistance rates rise. Rather than focusing research and developmenton creating affordable medicines for these deadly global diseases,pharmaceutical companies instead invest in commercially lucrative products formore affluent customers.
