Drugs–not just for Thursday nights

Written by

sdfsdWhat’s with the 20 masking taped garbage bags on the Plaza? Columbia’s chapter of the Student Global AIDS campaign are raising awareness about Abbott Labs‘ refusal to make a key anti-retroviral drug, Kaletra, available at low prices unless the government of Thailand rescinds an order to import generic versions of the life-saving medicine (read more here). Each bag represents 10,000 people in Thailand who need it. Make a phone call?

Meanwhile, Columbia School moms are holding a doozy of a bakesale on the Sundial–a little something to sweeten up your day after thinking about wasting diseases.
