This story is really frustrating. Plumpy nut is a nutritional product used in the treatment of SAM ( Severely Acute Malnutriton ). In India, with UNICEF's aid, GOI has been using it in selected states on pilot basis with good results. Such fights with an eye on the profit involved in the entire trade is shameful. This product must be marked as a lifesaving product that cannot be patented. The children in need cant wait. Also the price of plumpynut is too high. Why cant any Indian neutraceutical company manufacture it locally?
