More than 20 years ago, BUKO Pharma-Kampagne started to pay attention to the theme "Drugs and the Third World ". Today it is one of the few organisations in Germany that has a critical look at the dark side of the drug market in the North and in the South. Its commitment protects patients and consumers. BUKO Pharma-Kampagne supports the human right to healthy living conditions. Therefore it discusses also the negative repercussions of economic globalisation. We work closely with health and consumer groups all over the world. In collaboration with the international health network Health Action International(HAI) we managed to reveal many risks to health resulting in major improvements to healthcare policy in recent years.
