AIDS Medication in South Africa

AIDS Medication in South Africa

“South Africa and the drug companies have changed forever,” say David Pilling and Nicol degli Innocenti.1 South Africa is to the drug pharmaceutical industry what Vietnam was to the U.S. military. Nothing will be quite the same again. That, at least, is the view of Oxfam, the U.K. charity that has mounted a campaign for affordable medicines in poor countries. With other activist groups, it has championed the cause of the South African government, which has been in a three-year legal tussle with the drug industry about national legislation making it easier to override patents. Yesterday, the drug industry, exhausted by the vitriol that has been heaped upon it, threw in the towel. In return, they appear to have won certain assurances from….

Questionable Values Produce Resignation at Goldman Sachs

ETHICS CASE

Questionable Values Produce Resignation at Goldman Sachs

Allegations of serious impropriety and perhaps illegality surrounding Goldman Sachs’s contribution to the 2008 financial crisis have been well publicized. Allegations included trading for their own benefit directly against the interests of its clients (e.g., the ABACUS deal involved deliberately stuffing collateralized debt obligations with inferior mortgage assets, selling them to clients, and then short selling them for their own account) and abusive practices generally.1 These allegations and a description of the ABACUS deal are the subject of the ethics case “Goldman Sachs’s Conflicts: Guilty or Not?” which begins on page 685.

The underlying values associated with this kind of activity were obviously troubling. This was further illustrated in 2012 when Greg Smith, head of Goldman’s U.S. equity derivatives….

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopment condition specified as a childhood disorder.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopment condition specified as a childhood disorder. Although numerous research have been conducted on this disorder, there is still inadequate evidence on the unmet experiences and needs of ADHD adults. Nonetheless, continuous studies on ADHD longitudinal studies indicate that the symptoms of ADHD may persist until adulthood. Furthermore, it is common for ADHD adults to experience high comorbidities. Previous studies have shown that three out of four patients with ADHD have comorbid psychiatric disorder (Matte et al., 2012). Past research has revealed that adults who have ADHD may constantly complain of psychosocial and psychological difficulties which impairs their well-being, general functioning, and health-related quality of life (Corbisiero et al., 2013). In comparision to non-ADHD individuals, these individuals are in more control….
