With some discussion being raised around the Novartis vs India case in
India's Supreme court, Médecins Sans Frontières has produced this
user-friendly animation that explains what evergreening is and why it is an
attack on generic medicines.

'Evergreening drugs: an attack on generic medicines'.

Evergreening…sounds nice doesn’t it ? But evergreening is what drug
companies do when they want to increase profits and it leaves people in
developing countries without the medicines they need.
