E-DRUG: Multinationals out to make higher profits in developing countries (3)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks Ajay for this highlight. This behaviour is typical of all 
multinationals. In Kenya, some drugs (brands) are sold at prices higher than in 
Europe, or in other parts of Africa. This is because Kenya is considered a 
prime market, and any losses they make in other countries have to be recouped 
through this preferential pricing.  This behaviour is not right, and it's is 
morally wrong and it should be discouraged by all. I would suggest that you try 
parallel importing the cheaper versions from South Africa into Botswana.
