GSK Announces ‘Patent Drop’ For World’s Poorest Countries

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), one of the UK’s largest pharmaceutical manufacturers, unveiled that it will be dropping its patents in poorer countries.  This will make it easier for manufacturers in the world's poorest countries to copy its medicines.  Patents will not be filed in around 50 developing countries with a combined population of around 1 billion people.  This includes some of the world’s poorest countries such as Afghanistan, Rwanda and Cambodia.
