Custom Medicine

It is encouraging to develop our custom medicines. At the same time we must be careful of some oversea people who steal local knowledge for own use. Some oversea people usually come as large companies and they tell lies to locals. They can eventually develop patent for local medicine for overseas multi-million companies.

We must learn from the experiences of the African countries. Some overseas companies had stolen local knowlege.
