Doctors' “arabian nights”


Tasos Telloglou investigates the “arabian nights”, such as the pre-paid travels and the gifts that multinational pharmaceutical companies offer to doctors in return to prescribe more of their medicines. The camera of “The New Files” travelled to the town of Pyrgos in order to investigate a fraud which was set up by a network of doctors and drugstores and cost enormous losses to three Greek insurance funds. Finally, “The New Files” participated in Medical Conferences both in Athens and Ioannina in order to examine the “disastrous relationship” between doctors and the so called “Big Pharma”.
