Blog: Multinational Promotion of Global Health
February 12, 2010
The Guardian's global health blog looks into the work of the Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which works with multinational companies, such as Coca Cola and Chevron to use their ability to do business in "hard-to-reach" places to better global health. "The more cynical among us might think multinationals would happily shell out a shed-load of cash in a good cause to improve their public image -- isn't that what corporate social responsibility is often all about? But it's not just money -- sometimes the 'different competences they bring to the table' ... are just as useful" (Boseley, 2/9).
