Poor To Get Protection

THE World Health Organization chief said big drug companies have agreed to a plan to give poor countries access to a swine flu vaccine and antiviral medications if a worldwide outbreak is declared.

Dr Margaret Chan said she appealed for help as she met with drug companies and vaccine makers yesterday. She said some companies have pledged vaccine donations to poor countries while others said they will reserve some production for those nations. The firms also agreed to variable pricing, so that poorer countries would pay less.
