Discussing the laws in the current research funding decision process, the author suggests ways to improve future funding of health research systems. Chapters recount ways of raising funds, the tragic way authorities improperly introduced diptheria immunization, consideration of how the peer review system evolved in response to massive infusion of funds in the nineteen forties, and the status quo generating a climate conducive to ethics violations, among others. This fascinating work will be an invaluable tool to researchers, health care workers, members of government agencies and those in charitable organizations that support health research, as well as to anyone interested in current trends in this area, including patients.
