BMJ: “Healing an Ailing Pharmaceutical System”

Our comprehensive drug reform proposal, “Healing an Ailing Pharmaceutical System,”was published today in the British Medical Journal.

The proposal comes from the US/Canadian Pharmaceutical Working Group, a panel of physicians, scholars, and advocates from both nations that was convened by PNHP. It was launched this morning at a press release at the National Press Club, and was webcast. We were joined (via a recorded video message) by Representative Keith Ellison and Dr. Marcia Angell, former editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine. Steffie Woolhandler, co-founder of PNHP, moderated, and Sid Wolfe of Public Citizen, Ken Zinn of National Nurses United, and Alex Lawson of Social Security Works attended and spoke.  Video to follow!
