WHO Admits Pharma Corruption

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently released a “fact sheet” detailing the pervasive corruption in the pharmaceutical industry.  They detail the corruption at every level of the “medicine chain” or the flowchart each medication goes through from its inception, through trials, approvals, and distribution to patients.  According to the article, ” According to WHO data, unethical practices such as bribery, falsification of evidence, and mismanagement of conflicts of interest are “common throughout the medicine chain.””. 

The original article is definitely worth reading, we should all be aware that there are interests working in the pharmaceutical industry that are NOT working for the benefit of the patients!
