E-DRUG: Pharmageddon? - call for abstracts
Pharmageddon? Is a hypothesis.
Pharmageddon? describes "the prospect of a world in which medicines and
medicine produce more ill-health than health, and when medical progress
does more harm than good".
In line with the Precautionary Principle, we see the need to investigate
and explore that risk and to identify the factors and features that
describe it. Visit http://www.haiweb.org/17072007/Pharmageddon.pdf to
find out more.
What are the risks of Pharmageddon and what harms might be involved?
Health Action International, Social Audit and friends are in the early
stages of planning a conference on Pharmageddon. We want to develop
understanding of the threat, and a better model of what it might be.
We are now making this first call for abstracts/summaries of papers/
presentations that you might want to give or hear. We invite submissions from
all quarters that signal the nature of risk - including the lack of it, in
relation to the benefits felt. See:
We very much hope this will attract a thoughtful, high quality response,
reflecting a wide range of perspectives and ideas: please pass this on.
