Yesterday, Doctors Without Borders joined other demonstrators to protest outside the New York offices of the pharmaceutical company Novartis. The protest was against an attack on India’s patent law by Novartis, a case currently before India’s Supreme Court.

If Novartis wins, the production of life-saving generic medicines — including important anti-retroviral drugs for people living with HIV/AIDS — could be adversely affected.
