Hi there,

This week Democracy Now! is bringing you live, on-the-ground coverage of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where you’ll hear the voices and analysis you won’t get anywhere else. In August, we’ll travel to Chicago for the Democratic National Convention. Democracy Now! doesn’t accept corporate advertising or sponsorship revenue, and we don’t take money from any government. That means we’re relying on you. Can you donate $15 to Democracy Now! to support our RNC and DNC coverage—and so much more? Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $15 donation is worth $30 today. Please do your part to help us air in-depth, substantive coverage of the conventions and the issues that matter most during the 2024 election cycle. Thank you so much—and remember, every dollar makes a difference.
-Amy Goodman

WTO and WHO to Study How Poorer Countries Can Get Better Supplies of Cheap Medicines

HeadlineMar 16, 2001

The global trade and health bodies WTO and World Health Organization today announced a meeting of experts from North and South next month to study how poorer countries can get better supplies of cheap medicines. The two bodies will hold a workshop on differential pricing and financing of essential drugs in the Norwegian town of Hosbjor from April 8 to 11. The gathering will be attended by representatives of companies making both proprietary and generic drugs, of governments and of nongovernmental organizations concerned with international health and consumer rights. Academics and consultants who are expert in drugs, financing, pricing and trade policy would also attend the meeting, which is closed-door.
