An urgent call to build a new model for the pharmaceutical industry, from the multi-award-winning Times journalist.
The pharmaceutical industry is broken. From the American hedge fund manager who hiked the price of an AIDS pill overnight to the children's cancer drugs left intentionally to expire in a Spanish warehouse, the signs of this dysfunction are all around. A system built to drive innovation and patient care has been distorted to boost profits.
Unless we take action we risk a dramatic decline in the pace of drug development and a future in which medicines go to the highest bidder. In Sick Money investigative journalist Billy Kenber offers a diagnosis of an industry in crisis and a prescription for how we can fight back.
