2001: MSF gets pharma to drop legal attack on South African parallel-imports legislation


“In spring 2001, when the case went to court in Pretoria, MSF launched an international petition calling on the companies to drop the case. Nearly 300,000 people from over 130 countries signed the petition, and other organizations joined in as well. The European Parliament passed a resolution urging the companies to drop the case, a position echoed by ministers from a number of European governments.”
