WHO chief: Drug firms OK plan for vaccine to poor

The head of the World Health Organization says major drug companies have agreed on a plan to give poor countries access to a swine flu vaccine and antiviral medications if a worldwide outbreak is declared.

Dr. Margaret Chan says she appealed for help as she met with drug companies and vaccine makers on Tuesday.

Chan says some companies have pledged vaccine donations to poor countries while others say they will reserve some production for poor countries.
