HOW THIS WAS ACCOMPLISHED:
The New York Times reports that the US Inspector General of the Dept. of Health and Human Services has issued a new report slamming the FDA for its failure to ensure the safety of human subjects in clinical trials. The IG report shows that FDA has essentially done NOTHING to improve its oversight and enforcement of clinical trials since the IG last investigated in the year 2000.
Although human subjects are the linchpin of the multi-billion dollar clinical trial industry--without whom such trials, and the data collected from those trials, could not be conducted--no one has bothered to tally the number of human subjects. As Dr. Art Caplan, ethicist at the University of Pennsylvania concedes, "In many ways, rats and mice get greater protection as research subjects in the United States than do humans." [It is a refrain we have made since 1999.]

of health surveillance through the monitoring of
infectious disease outbreaks using syndromic and
diagnostic methodologies. GEIS programs continue
to identify and address critical gaps in emerging
infectious disease preparedness. Through its accomplishments
and capabilities, GEIS continues to
contribute to force health protection and is a vital
partner in the global effort to identify and control
emerging infectious diseases.

So who does the dirty work? and what happens when the populace figures it out and gets mad at the frontline worker?
NASS Confidentiality Pledge
Our Guarantee for Safeguarding Your Privacy
Every person working for or in cooperation with NASS – from the Agency Administrator to the person collecting the information – signs a confidentiality from which states that no reported survey information will be compromised. This includes sworn partners who are approved and supervised by NASS to provide statistical research.
So here next is what to do if you manage to get a "franchise operation" to collect all the dataNASS Handbook
Here is the part I looked at that caused concern (remember we are dealing with infectious diseases here) although this phrase enumerators was REALLY getting to me. It's just too Orwellian.
7.3 INSURANCEOne can get workman's compensation, and return after a long term illness (!!) and there is a section specifically telling the Enumerator Superviser how to deal with it.
The NASDA ENUMERATOR HANDBOOK outlines individual enumerator insurance responsibilities, coverage by NASDA, and procedures to file claims for NASDA job related injuries. NASDA does not provide health insurance coverage for enumerators or supervisory enumerators.
Now, about government transparency

FYI - June 26th, 2007
Bloomberg News reports that despite a federal law requiring government
agencies to provide documents to citizens filing a request
of Information Act (FOIA) requests about drug and food safety hazards are
pilling up at the FDA.
Indeed, the FDA is the worst among all […]Okay, let's get to FDA suppression of data
Without independent checks and balances--including unannounced inspections--it's anyone's guess. Worse still, the industry, with FDA support and encouragement, is outsourcing more and more clinical trials offshore to underdeveloped countries--to save money, but more importantly, to evade any oversight.For information on FDA coverups and threats made on drug whistleblowers revealed during Senate testimony see,
The FDA’s 20,365 unfilled requests for information exceed the totals for the departments of Defense and Justice. One company, FOI Services Inc., accounts for 44 percent of the backlog, according to the agency. Researchers, consumer groups and individuals say the delays limit their ability to alert the public to food and drug dangers and to hold the FDA accountable.
Historical timeline on mindcontrol/false memory syndrome in Canada
A Sad History of Abuses
Headline-making lapses in the ethical treatment of mentally ill patients include:
1950s and '60s: Dr. Ewen Cameron, Montreal psychiatrist, made extensive use of electroshock and LSD to cure relatively minor ailments. Cameron's brainwashing experiments were partially funded by the CIA. In 1992, Canada paid $100,000 to patients as compensation.
1994: The California superior court ruled that psychiatrist Dr. Richard Rose and therapist, Marche Isabella implanted false memories of child abuse in a patient and wrongly harmed her father. The case received international attention because it marked the first time a court allowed a therapist to be sued for implanting false memories.
2005: The Supreme Court of British Columbia approved a $450,000 settlement between the provincial government and nine women with mental disabilities who were sterilized while patients at Riverview Psychiatric Hospital. The women were sterilized at the hospital in nearby Coquitlam between 1940 and 1968.
