Pharmaceuticals for the Developing World

Tuesday, Jul. 13, 2010

What obligations do pharmaceutical companies have to their stock holders and development financers? What responsibilities, if any, does the pharmaceutical industry have to both the local and global communities? 

Graudating senior Kari Kjos, a 2009-10 Hackworth Fellow at the Ethics Center, created a discussion module for students to address these questions.  Drawing on a video case by Center Director Kirk O. Hanson, the module offers background information on the science, discussion questions, and an op-ed on the topic.
