Next week, August 15, the drug price control policy of the Philippine government will mark its second year anniversary. Did it achieve its goal of making branded drugs, some still patented drugs, by multinational pharma companies become more affordable to the poor?

Another exercise, I typed "drug price control" in google, yahoo, and bing/MSN, and I was happily surprised of the result.
I don't use any modern SEO technique, I just write as much as my time would allow, then post in this blog. That is why I am happy that a number of my blog articles here are able to land on page 1 or the top 10 articles of those top 3 search engines on the issue of "drug price control".
See also the earlier search, Drug price control 10: Blog posts on page 1 of Bing, Google and Yahoo, June 09, 2011.
Today, I made the search more specific. If you type "drug price control Philippines" on all 3 big search engines, the results are more amazing, at least for me :-)
