Summary
The developing world is soon set to get affordable vaccines and affordable drugs. A new international agreement is planning to fix the price of a drug or vaccine to make them affordable for some of the world’s poorest people. The agreement is between donors, drug companies and governments. Saving Lives travels to some of the countries where the agreement will make a massive impact, with the head of the organization promising such a radical reform. On the journey we find out whether the agreement is going to deliver on its promise, what the result will be, and how global health institutions and the big pharmaceutical companies managed to agree on such a deal.
