To the Rector of the Universidad del Valle (Cali, Colombia) and the Dean of the Faculty Health

I have said several months ago that my opinions do not necessarily represent those of the institution for which they work. However, I have asked you as managers about one year ago assume a stance on issues like these:

Re: IETSColombia

About the self-regulation of the medical profession

Your response “Your comment is awaiting moderation”

“Univalle_FSalud: Contact Dean” Re: “. Your comment is awaiting moderation”

I wish to remind the president (Dr. Ivan Enrique Ramos) that this is part of the mission of the Universidad del Valle.

…”According to its nature of state institution assumes delegated commitments to building a just and democratic society.”

I want to remind Dean (Dr. Gerardo Campo) that this is part of the ideology of the right to health of the Universidad del Valle.

 “Rate promotes and encourages interest in identifying the problems that affect the welfare of society.”

“Build timely responses to the needs of society related to training, research and extension, in line with its principles, values, possibilities and potential.”

“Trained to solve problems by encouraging interdisciplinary work, which should involve not only appropriate and relevant actors of the same Faculty and University, but also the whole of society.”

My tenure-track period ended on February 16, 2015.

The examination of the Universidad del Valle starts today (April 21, 2015) and will last indefinitely.

Backfire: moving beyond the rhetoric.

This is a nonviolent action against corruption, widespread bribery, and criminal activities of pharmaceutical companies involving institutions of higher education in Colombia (public and private) as well as other governmental organizations, professional medical associations (national and international) and medical journals (e.g., New England Journal of Medicine, The Lancet, Colombia Médica, others).

Is the pharmaceutical industry like the mafia?


P.S. My best regards to the administrators of the Facebook page Confesiones Univalle, thanks a lot.
