IT’S TIME TO GO NATURAL
The goals of fightPHARMAcorruption are to fight Big Pharma corruption primarily in Australia in the following key areas:
- The influence on governments to pass legislation favourable to Big Pharma and discriminating towards natural medicine professions.
- The influence on universities to conduct scientific studies favourable to Big Pharma without due rigor for accepted global standards of scientific rigour
- The influence on government agencies to fast track drug approvals without appropriate saferty and efficacy trials, and subsequent after-market monitoring.
- The facilitation of sceptic organisations and medical lobby groups to target natural medicine professions and their key leaders.
- The influence upon research organisations such as the NHMRC to depart from their mandatory guidelines in critical areas such as the Australian Immunisation Handbook.
- The distortion of mainstream media reporting in favour of Big Pharma and critical of natural medicine professions.
- The undue pressure on doctors to fail to report adverse events, or speak out about safety risks of any drug.
- The creation of Medicines Australia, a self regulatory club of Big Pharma companies to usurp the usual role of the ACCC in protecting consumers.
- The initiation of all appropriate legal action to re-address all outcomes of Big Pharma’s alleged corruptions in Australia.
- To foster world-class whistleblower legislation in Australia with financial incentives, to encourage the truth about corruption.
