Corruption and Health

Posted Nov 18 2008 12:17am

Corruption and Health: Medicine is supposed to be a "noble profession" - but it's also one of the most corrupt ones as well ! "The GCR 2006 focuses on corruption and health. The book includes expert reports on:
* the risks of corruption in different health care systems
* the scale of the problem: from high-level corruption in Costa Rica to counterfeit medicines in Nigeria to
* health care fraud in the United States
* the costs of corruption in hospital administration and the problem of informal payments for health care
* the impact of corruption at various points of the pharmaceutical chain
* anti-corruption challenges posed by the fight against HIV/AIDS"
You can read it online free - this is quite an eye-opener !
