One billion tablets per year can do a lot of good in the right hands.
Because in global health, the challenge is not simply identifying drugs that work. It is about producing them in sufficient quantities and making them accessible to the people who need them most.
This film documents how GSK pulled out all the stops to ramp up its production capability of Albendazole, a drug that helps to combat the spread of debilitating conditions such as Lymphatic Filariasis (LF), which affects 120 million people worldwide. Now producing and donating one-billion Albendazole tablets per year, GSK’s efforts are part of a record-breaking charitable programme delivered by Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases.
