Orphan Drugs in Third world countries:
Millions of people in Third World countries do not have access to the health care, drugs and vaccines available in developed countries. 10 million children less than 5 years old die each year of infectious diseases for which treatments exist in developing countries. 3 million children die each year because they have not been immunised. 150 million women would like to wait longer between two pregnancies or limit them, but they do not have access contraception. The spread of the AIDS epidemic only widens the health gap between poor countries and developed countries.
