Flu vaccine drips out of a syringe as a nurse prepares for a patient at a clinic in central London November 22, 2005. Britain's Department of Health ordered doctors on Tuesday to restrict influenza vaccinations to people aged over 65 and other vulnerable groups as fears over bird flu sparked a run on its emergency reserve.

A X-ray of a patient with a lung tumour caused by smoking is seen at Ruijin Hospital in Shanghai April 27, 2011. China will ban smoking at all indoor public venues from May 1, in an effort to shield the world's most populous nation, and its largest cigarette producer, from the harmful effects of the habit, the health ministry said. China, which has more than 300 million smokers, will require businesses to display prominent no-smoking signs, forbid vending machines from selling cigarettes and ensure that designated outdoor smoking zones not affect pedestrian traffic. Although nearly 1.2 million Chinese people die from smoking-related diseases each year, the habit is deeply entrenched in public life. Picture taken April 27, 2011.

Last month, the Thai Health Ministry issued compulsory licenses for the heart disease drug Plavix, made by Bristol-Myers Squibb and Sanofi-Aventis and Abbott Laboratories' Kaletra to treat HIV/AIDS after a similar move on another AIDS drug last year. The licenses, which Thai health officials said would save the country up to 800 million baht ($24 million) a year, drew praise from AIDS activists but flak from Washington and the drug industry, which are urging the ministry to rescind them.

Nurse Maria Vatista is seen inside a mobile HIV testing van in Omonia square in Athens October 31, 2011. The latest available United Nations figures, from 2009, show that 11,000 people, or 0.1 percent of the Greek population, had HIV/AIDS, a third the rate in the United States. But that may be changing. In the first five months of 2010, Greece had 255 new HIV cases. Over the same period this year, there were 384 new cases -- an increase of more than 50 percent. The Hellenic Center predicts the rate of increase will rise to 60 percent by the end of 2011. By comparison in the United States, cases are increasing by around 7 percent annually.

French health regulators are studying limiting the use of contraceptive pills that carry health risks and will stop reimbursing prescription costs of some types from March, after a woman sued drugmaker Bayer over alleged side-effects. An inquiry launched this week by the ANSM health regulator will review prescription practices by doctors, whom it says may be over-prescribing higher-risk third and fourth-generation pills.
