Should the economy be more important than human health?
Medical research is expensive. Some illnesses affect a small number of people.
Therefore, low income people cannot afford some drugs which which would make their lives better.
Is one human life more important than another?
Is there a way to both afford the research and provide drugs at low cost?
Yes, there is a way to solve this problem. The government should fund research.
When a company has developed a proven drug which is too expensive for low income people to afford, the government should purchase the research cost of developing the drug and the company would make the drug available at the cost of production without including the cost of development.
