Center for Medicine in the Public Interest

Hi Marisa

re CMPI page, in this bit:

The director of the Stockholm Network (SN), Helen Disney, used to sit on its now defunct advisory board along with representatives from two think tanks who are part of the SN: International Policy Network and Centre for New Europe

can we name these 2 reps in the sentence? just for clarity

thanks! --Claire Robinson 13:33, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Center for Medicine in the Public Interest (2)

HI Marisa

does this bit on the CMPI say what I think it does??

Publications and Affiliations

  • On 20 September 2005, the CMPI released a report called 21ST CENTURY HEALTH CARE TERRORISM: THE PERILS OF INTERNATIONAL DRUG COUNTERFEITING with the Pacific Institute. It was authored by Peter Pitts, founder of CMPI, along with Michael Tew and Alexandra Preate from Capital HQ. [5]

are the CMPI seriously equating the manufacture of counterfeit drugs with terrorism?? do they place all counterfeit drugs in the same category as cheaper generic drugs made in 3rd world countries that are either outside international patent agreements or bootleg drugs, like the 'versace' handbags made in China?

obviously adulterated/contaminated drugs are dangerous, but many cheap generic drugs made in India, say, are as 'safe' as the official sort but just cheaper.

is this worthy of a bit of analysis from you? or nothing to be alarmed about?

many thanks
