Pharma companies discover, develop and manufacture both medication and medical equipment that range across Vaccines, Prescription and Over the Counter (OTC) medications. Many of these products are critical to either sustain life or cure illnesses.

These attacks have the potential to halt both the discovery and production of medication and may lead to a lack of supply of patient critical mediation or devices.
