Binghamton University professor launches web tool to track impact of drugs worldwide

Billions of dollars have been spent on developing drugs and supplying them around the world, but which companies' drugs are actually making an impact? The Global Health Impact Index, headed by Binghamton University Associate Professor Nicole Hassoun and highlighted in a new article published in PLOS ONE, addresses this issue by ranking pharmaceutical companies based on their drugs' impact on global health. The Global Health Impact Index considers how companies drugs measure up on the basis of their impact on the "big three" infectious diseases: malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. The index looks at three things: the need for several important drugs for tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and malaria; the drugs' effectiveness; and the number of people who can access the drugs. Each company's score is the sum of its drugs' impacts.
