GlaxoSmithKline is a British pharmaceutical company which is headquartered in London. The company provides affordable prescriptions drugs to all considering the current healthcare crisis in different countries all around the globe and the lack of availability of affordable prescription drugs. Based on the online research and different consulted sources, it can be said that it is completely ethical that people getting their prescriptions filled with this Canadian Company.
There are number of reason of considering this as ethical that people are getting their prescriptions filled with this Canadian company. These reasons are:
- In general context, there are a lot of healthcare crisis going on in the country and the affordable prescription drugs are not available to all. Hence, for the availability of these medicine, it can be said that company is doing quite fine.
- In healthcare settings, the most important and valuable thing is to save someone’s life and to provide the timely patient care with affordable rates. In this context, this thing cannot be said as unethical as company is just focusing on providing affordable prescription drugs to all(Riley, 2014).
There can be another view to look at this scenario which might disagree with the above mentioned reasons and can argue that it is important to get the properly prescribed drugs for the healthcare betterment. But for the sake of peoples’ health and humanity, this is not an unethical practice.
