A nice launch of this campaign helped by the responses from:
- Medicines Australia (“the idea that you can ignore information from a pharmaceutical company that has conducted extensive research and development to help treat disease is laughable at best and negligent at worst”), and the
- Australian Medical Association (“the campaign is a bit silly. It’s insulting to doctors. It’s also rather naive).
Good media coverage including ABC TV 7:30 report, The Guardian, Fairfax media, The Australian, The Conversation, Croaky, 6-minutes, OzDoc, the Medical Observer, MJA Insight, and more recently The Wall Street Journal.
