Big Pharma may threaten to cut S.Africa investment in generics row (Reuters)
Posted on: January 20 2014, 11:56 am

Global drug firms may threaten to cut their South African investments as part of a campaign against Pretoria's plans to overhaul its intellectual property laws to favour generic production, documents seen by Reuters show.

South Africa is in the final stages of implementing a new law that would allow generic drugmakers to produce cut-price copies of patented medicines and generally make it harder to register and roll-over pharmaceutical patents.
