E-DRUG: For Bakari: Possibility for WHO to make medicines, vaccines available? 
------------------------------------------------------------

Pleasure to have the valuable services of the expert.

Isn't it possible for WHO to manufacture/procure/make available quality 
essential medicines at affordable price like vaccines?

If WHO can do it, countries which do not have manufacturing facilities and are 
dependent on costly imports stand to benefit. Health of marginalized 
populations which are in actual need of essential medicines, can be improved. 
Exploitation at the hands of pharmaceutical industry can be stopped. 
Nonavailability, artificial shortage, black marketing, counterfeits etc can be 
checked. Increased demand during calamities can be effectively met. Supply 
lines can be managed to meet the emergencies around the globe. And the goal of 
Health for all can be realized.
