Editorial by Prof. Victor Rodwin Looks at BRIC Health Systems and Big Pharma

An editorial written by Professor Victor Rodwin for the International Journal of Health Policy and Management explores the increasing reliance by the healthcare systems in Brazil, Russia, India, and China on prescriptions drugs.

"The response of the BRIC nations to Big Pharma presents contrasting cases of how governments manage the tensions posed by rising public expectations and limited resources to satisfy them. Understanding these tensions represents an emerging area of research and an important challenge for all those who work in the field of health policy and management," he writes in the editorial, BRIC Health Systems and Big Pharma: A Challenge for Health Policy and Management.
