#lobbying

The pharmaceutical industry exerts a huge amount of influence on health policy. Some companies develop highly profitable drugs with public money, while others have been found to have covered up serious side effects.

The fight against Covid-19 is further fueling the greed of pharmaceutical companies. Does the industry’s influence threaten public health systems?

The industry has seen major changes in the last decade. Most of the world’s pharmaceuticals are produced by a handful of large corporations, so-called Big Pharma. They’re richer and more powerful than ever. In some cases, they can even call the shots on governmental health policies.

This documentary is the result of more than a year of research, and brings together patients, whistleblowers, lawyers, doctors and politicians, as well as representatives of the industry. Large laboratories are accused of concealing or downplaying research results to maintain their monopolies. Take the manufacturer Sanofi, whose epilepsy drug Depakine triggered a scandal throughout Europe. In the US, Johnson & Johnson has had to stand trial for driving millions of people into opioid addiction. And Novartis is one of several companies now facing huge fines over improper practices in the treatment of macular degeneration, an eye disease.

The pharmaceutical industry gets support from influential doctors. But only one-fifth of German doctors declare what they receive from drug companies. As the world battles the Coronavirus pandemic, this documentary also looks at the lobbying efforts of manufacturer Gilead, as it seeks approval for a promising drug developed largely with public money. Every company is vying to find the next miracle treatment that will help it succeed against the competition.

DOS CHORUDOS NEGÓCIOS DO SENHOR DOUTOR FILIPE FROES COM AS FARMACÊUTICAS

Anteontem, na TVI, ao minuto 15:20, o Doutor Flipe Froes teve um toque na consciência e declarou o seguinte:

"Eu já agora tenho de fazer aqui uma declaração de conflito de interesses. Eu há mais de 12 anos sou perito da Comissão Técnica Nacional de Vacinação. Portanto, eu estou habituado a fazer estas contas. Eu não sou paraquedista".

Eu também acredito que o Doutor Filipe Froes não é paraquedista, mas é um hipócrita. Porque, se assim não fosse, não vinha assumir uma declaração de conflito de interesses sem grande relevância (até por estar em causa uma entidade pública), esquecendo-se de enunciar a sua vastíssima relação com farmacêuticas, entre as
quais a Pfizer e a AstraZeneca, e também omitindo que, enfim, tem beneficiado muito, financeiramente, com a pandemia. E continuará a beneficiar com o prolongamento.

Aliás, sempre que vejo, leio ou oiço o Doutor Filipe Froes tenho uma dúvida sobre se ele fala como reconhecido pneumologista de um hospital público ou se está a fazer "lobby", porquanto estamos perante alguém que, além do ordenando do Estado, este ano já recebeu, em menos de oito meses, 50.568,72 euros provenientes de 13
farmacêuticas (Bayer, BIAL, Boehringer Ingelheim, Gilead, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Lilly, Merck Sharp & Dohme, Novartis, Pfizer, Roche, Sanofi e Tecnifar). Por mês temos um pecúlio de quase 6.750 euros.

Nada mau.

Da parte da Pfizer só este ano o Doutor Froes recebeu 10.854,43 euros.

Uma parte desta verba foi facturada a título pessoal e uma grande parte através da empresa Terras & Froes, que compartilha com a mulher Ana Maria Sequeira Terras.

O valor no ano passado arrecadado pelo Doutor Filipe Froes foi de 59.206,93 euros provenientes de 14 farmacêuticas, A Pfizer concedeu-lhe 17.527,50 euros, todas para pagamento de palestras. A AstraZeneca foi mais moderada: "apenas" 4.000 euros por palestras.

Quando há dias falava da necessidade de declarações de interesses, falava destas situações. O Doutor Filipe Froes tem a obrigação de declarar este conflito de interesses. Ou então a comunicação social deve identificá-lo como consultor ou palestrante das farnacêuticas. Ou lobbysta, o que melhor o enquadra nesta história.

The Justice Department is reportedly looking into potential illegal lobbying allegations against a consulting firm tied to Ukrainian energy company Burisma, where President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, previously served on the board.

Politico reported Thursday that four people familiar with the matter said officials are looking into Blue Star Strategies, which took on Burisma as a client when Hunter Biden still served on the board.
