Deadly disease

Thursday, Jun 13, 2024

Corruption is a resilient and highly contagious virus. Sadly, it appears to have spread to the healthcare system. Its breeding grounds are greedy pharmaceutical companies, dishonest doctors, and corrupt officials and the victimsare those patients lying in hospital beds.

Unnecessary charges and careless diagnosis, bullying, silencing, and prioritizing profit over care has ruined our public health system. In order to root out this menace, we need greater accountability and transparency and independent oversight in our healthcare network.
