Bad medicine : the prescription drug industry in the Third World by Milton Silverman( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pharmaceutical industry has long and vehemently insisted that it has the willingness, the dedication, and the ability to police itself to insure that the public will not be unnecessarily harmed or defrauded. As the record shows with painful clarity, however, virtually no industry or professional group has ever adequately policed itself, and the pharmaceutical industry is no exception. Where the most flagrant abuses have been exposed and corrected, major credit must probably be divided among the media that publicized the situation, consumer groups that applied pressure, government officials who took actions that were often unpopular, and individual members of the pharmaceutical industry who had the courage to face up to their social responsibilities. To this number should perhaps be added the three authors of this volume who have, in a series of books such as Pills, Profits, and Politics, The Drugging of America, and Prescriptions for Death: The Drugging of the Third World, exposed fraudulent practices by U.S. and multinational pharmaceutical companies. In this book, the authors turn their attention to what happened in Third World countries when, because of worldwide pressures, the multinational drug companies largely corrected their notorious abuses. On the basis of painstaking research, much of it conducted in a great many Third World countries, the authors conclude that a plethora of small local firms have filled the dishonest sales channels vacated by the multinationals. The authors show in great detail how local drug firms in the Third World have taken advantage of loose regulatory practices and unscrupulous behavior on the part of regional and national health care professionals to promote the sale of dangerous or worthless drugs as remedies for diseases for which they were never intended. Warnings of bad side effects are omitted from promotional literature, drugs are sold that have not had proper trials, and drug firms have often bribed government officials, doctors, and hospital administrators in order to gain favorable treatment in the importation and sale of their products. Among the many topics treated in this book are the controversy over inexpensive generic drugs (including disclosures of fraud and bribery in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration), the actions of consumer groups, and the key role of government in preventing abuses by drug firms. The authors describe a remarkable attempt in Bangladesh, one of the poorest of all the developing countries, to develop a high-quality local drug industry. They also present as case histories reports on three extremely important drug products or groups--the dipyrones (for control of pain and fever), high-dosage estrogen-progesterone hormone products (for use in pregnancy tests), and clioquinol or Enterovioform (for treatment of diarrhea)--all of which were or still are centers of worldwide, heated controversy

Deliberations and compromise : the Health professions educational assistance act of 1976 by Lauren LeRoy( Book )

5 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public hearing records and committee reports compiled during 1975 and 1976 by the House Subcommittee on Health and the Environment and Senate Subcommittee on Health provide a wealth of information and analysis on major issues in the training and distribution of health professionals. This book summarizes the material in those documents to provide wider exposure to the public deliberations that preceded passage of the Health Professions Educational Assistance Act of 1976. It consists of five chapters that correspond to the five major issue areas considered by Congress: 1) the adequacy of physician supply, including the role of foreign medical graduates and the impact of mid-level health professionals; 2) continuing federal support for medical education; 3) the maldistribution of physicians among specialties; 4) the geographic maldistribution of physicians; and 5) licensure standards and procedures. Each chapter presents a series of excerpts which represent the range of information, research findings, conclusions, and recommendations presented to the committees. Similar statements were repeated only when the authors felt they contributed to a more complete understanding of the factors confronting the committees in their deliberations. (Author/JG)
