Medical bribery seems to be a global problem from Eastern Europe and the Balkans to China, a diffuse phenomenon, starting with morally acceptable gratitude and ending with institutional bribery. I focus my attention on Romania and analyze similar cases in Eastern European and postcommunist countries. Medical bribery can be regarded as a particular form of human transaction, a kind of primitive contract that occurs when people do not trust institutions or other forms of social contract that are meant to guarantee their rights and protect their interests.

The "Health for All Project" (HFAP) policy in Nigeria was complemented by the National Drug Policy to ensure constant availability of high quality drugs and medical consumables at affordable prices to citizens in public hospitals. Apart from strengthening the utilization of health services, the project also sought to improve health care delivery for the poor who could not afford the high cost of drugs in private clinics and pharmaceutical stores.

The ectropion was corrected. Such nonsurgical management may be attempted as an alternate initial therapy for the patient who refuses or should not immediately undergo additional surgery.

Chiropractic History: The Archives and Journal of the Association for the History of Chiropractic

Dossa Dixon Evins, one of the lesser known figures in chiropractic history, played a prominent role in the 1920s, yet we know little about him. He was a vaudeville entertainer with his wife Billie, an inventor, electrical engineer, and a radio operator for the Secret Service during World War I. He is also the person who best weathered the hurricane which his most famous invention stirred in the chiropractic profession. What sort of man was he? The author seeks to answer that question in this paper as well as delving into the Neurocalometer Incident.
