CHANDIGARH, PUNJAB, INDIA, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — An intern serving the neediest at NRS Medical college, Kolkata, Dr. Paribaha Mukhopadhyay, suffered depressed skull fracture. This was result of an attack by a 200 strong mob; consisting of the relatives and acquaintances of an elderly gentleman who died while receiving treatment at the NRS Hospital. The brutality of this incident lead to more than a week long impasse of medical fraternity going on work strike seeking stringent laws and safe workplace environment. This disrupted the health care again for the most needy and vulnerable who depend on Government funded healthcare centers. It is imperative to note that the employer in this case State Government is required to provide a place of employment that is free from recognized hazards. We explore violence against health-care practitioners in India to understand its reasons and prevention.

Violence against physicians: Is this problem specific to India or a global issue?

Health care system in India is rife with infrastructure and human resource constraints. The charge for Governmental facilities initially was to help with disease prevention, vaccination, and maternal child health and they have done a great job at achieving these goals. The expectations are changing with aging of populations, and a growing population and economy. One would probably assume that violence against healthcare providers is more common in India or similar developing countries.

A WHO Publication, indicates that more than half of health care providers around the world faced at least one incidence of violence (physical or psychological) in the past year: Brazil (47%), Thailand (54%), South Africa (61%) and United Kingdom (65%), Australia (67%), and Israel (74%). In the United States, 3 out of every 4 cases related to workplace violence are reported from the health care set up. The severity and consequence of these incidents in countries excluding US with high gun violence. About 3 out of every 4 reported workplace violence in the US of nearly 25,000 reported each year occurs to workers in healthcare settings.

An Indian Medical Association study came to a conclusion that 75% of doctors in India have faced violence at some point or the other in their careers; most cases being reported form ICUs (Intensive Care Units) and the perpetrators commonly being patient attendants. In conclusion, violence against medical practitioners is fairly prevalent across the globe and is not confined to India or the developing nations.

Possible Reasons for Such High Rates of Violence

1. Mismatch between expectations from healthcare system, and reality leading to frustration may play a large role. Frustrations start with long wait times, crowding in clinical areas, delay in treatment due to access to diagnostic and treatment modalities.
2. Lack of healthcare infrastructure to support the needs of a growing population in cities as well as human resources affecting the emotional wellbeing of healthcare provider’s esp. those in training who may be spread too thin.
3. Lack of healthcare education among patients and their relatives about the health condition
4. Financial constraints on family members and lack of transparency and forthrightness about expenses can be a source of frustration.
5. Poor settings and communication in breaking adverse news to family members including lack of proper training among trainees who may be the only ones available in odd hours at night in ICU settings.
6. Lack of proper channels for expression and resolution of patient grievances
7. A general sense of corruption and mistrust in both healthcare justice systems
8. Lastly, a lack of basic (well trained and equipped security personal, unrestricted access of guests to clinical areas, screening of guests), strong deterrents (stringent laws) against work-place violence and mob violence.

The immediate enabling factor is the poor security measures at most government hospitals. Unlike other public places with high-footfall, there is hardly any screening or checking of entrants from a security point of view in hospitals. The very fact that a mob of 200 odd could reach right where the doctors were working, without encountering any resistance, speaks volumes about the inadequacy of security provisions. During the course of the current protest, one got to hear repeatedly, that doctors are considered soft targets, who can be attacked without fear of any consequences. It is a debatable point of view, because most attacks on doctors, are carried out in the heat of the moment and not premeditated. Since the crime is one of passion, it is doubtful if the doctor or other medical staff being thought of as a soft target has much to do with such incidents.

Legal protection against violence towards health care providers in India. How does it compare to other countries?

Queensland, Australia has one of the harshest laws to deal with violence against healthcare professionals, with provisions of imprisonment of up to 14 years. The National Health Service in United Kingdom has a ‘Zero Tolerance’ policy towards violence against health professionals. The Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Act provides for imprisonment up to 12 months. Even in the much more federal United States of America, with provisions differ from state to state, of late, there have been calls to move towards more uniform policies to deal with and prevent violence against health-care professionals, an example being the Health Care Workplace Violence Prevention Act tabled in 2018. Many states designate assault on healthcare workers as third-degree felony which can carry a sentence of 5 years in prison, and five years probation.

One of the demands of the protesting doctors (which in principle was accepted by Dr. Harsh Vardhan, the Hon. Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare), is a strong law to deal with perpetrators of violence against health care professionals. It is interesting to note, that there already exists, in as many as 19 states of India (including West Bengal), a Protection Of Medicare Service Persons And Medicare Service Institutions (Prevention Of Violence And Damage To Property) Act, also known as the Medical Protection Act (MPA). As per provisions of the Act, attacking a health-care professional or causing damage to property in a health-care facility can attract a fine of Rs. 50,000 and a jail term of 3 years. Additionally, there are the general provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) dealing with assault, injury and grievous injury (the fracture suffered by Dr. Paribaho would have been one). Protection of patient rights falls under the Consumer Protection Act (COPRA).

There are problems with the implementation of the MPA, as it is as yet not included in the IPC or CrPC (Code of Criminal Procedure) and the law enforcement system in India is ill-famed for its tedious, slow moving pace. Moreover, in many cases (possibly including the latest one in Kolkata), the perpetrators of violence against the health-practitioners are linked to the party in power at the local level or enjoy its patronage. In such cases, the law enforcement machinery can hardly be expected to be unbiased and efficient in bringing to book the perpetrators.

A new law promised by Dr. Harsh Vardhan (Hon. Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India), comes close- with 12 years of imprisonment in such cases, envisaged to be made part of the law.

Possible Preventive and Deterrent Measures !

Though, harsh and swift punishments of any offender will deter violence and assault. The issue is complex and needs attention at multiple systematic levels. Providing more resources including security at workplaces to avoid overcrowding may be an immediate step. Training of healthcare professional in identification and de-escalation of conflicts will be next important step. Simulations and mock-drills could be carried out from time to time to check the systems at hand and plug loopholes, if any. The broader and important issue of more resources to health care system, priorities, and checking waste, reduce out of pocket expenses, as well as building trust and respect in the system should follow.

Greene Consulting Group Opens Search Engine Marketing and Search Engine Optimization Division To Help Local Business Sell More Products and Services.

It's Not About the product…It's About the Audience"”

— Maynard Greene

HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Greene Consulting Group, an Internet Marketing Consulting company operating in Houston, Texas, has today been recognized as being a front runner in the realm of SEM & SEO announces today the official opening of their Search Engine Marketing and Search Engine Optimization Division. This news coincides nicely with Greene Consulting Group's recent recognition as a community favorite, due to their efforts helping non-profit organizations and small and medium sized businesses, leverage the internet to sell more products and services including raising funds for non-profit community programs.

Greene Consulting Group has been operating in the Small and Medium Sized businesses market for Twenty-Three (23) Years and competes against notable businesses such as Rev-local, Reach Local and AT&T Business Solutions. They have been able to make such a strong impression on the market and gain reputation by providing large Agency digital marketing services at a boutique Agency price.

Maynard Greene, Greene Consulting Group's Director of Systems spoke about its recent recognition, expanding on some of the decisions and motivations that led the business to the level it's currently reached.

"When Greene Consulting Group was founded, it was made abundantly clear we wanted to be the kind of company that was known for being a company putting real value into the world by cutting through all the noise and generating REAL results. One of the biggest challenges we faced was educating SMBs on the importance leveraging the power of SEO & SEM to get more customers.

The problem is that it’s difficult for local businesses to know how to leverage an SEO plan to get more customers. And the good news is that it doesn’t have to be difficult, if you’ve got the right strategy.
There are millions of people looking for local businesses every day, what’s important is zoning in on the right kind of strategy using SEO that will allow local businesses to grab as much attention as possible and gain more customers.

Optimizing a website can appear to be an easy process, but local businesses find out pretty quickly that optimizing a website to attract and convert website visitors into actual customers is a huge challenge.

So, how does a local business leverage the power of SEO? Here are a few specific principles.

• Know your keywords – words that people type in as buyers instead of just as an interest.
• Know your numbers – in business, the numbers tell you what to do, don’t ignore them.
• Only market to people that are interested in what you have.

Fortunately, with some good people behind us, and An unwavering dedication to staying up to date on the ongoing changes in the digital marketing and reputation management space and communicating the same to our business clients, we were able to overcome every obstacle and really hit our stride."

Maynard Greene also mentioned that Greene Consulting Group's future plans involve bundling Greene Consulting group services in budget friendly packages for SMBs. It's the hope of the company that in the future more and more small and medium sized businesses realize that not every marketing agency is out to take their money, that some, like Greene Consulting Group, are actually trying to add value.

Greene Consulting Group plans to maintain its position at the forefront of helping Local Small Businesses sell more products and services, for years to come, building on its success, finding new ways to serve its community, customers and the world at large.

For those that want to learn more they can go to https://digitalmarketing.gcg2.net/seo-sem/ where they can learn about Greene Consulting Group and SEO & SEM. Or they can call us at (832) 671-2642.

Connecticut US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate Now Appeals to A Navy Veteran with Mesothelioma in Connecticut To Call Them for Direct Access to Attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste-Get the Compensation You Deserve


"If a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in Connecticut wants the very best possible financial compensation we are urging them or their family members to call us at 800-714-0303." ”

— Connecticut Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW LONDON, CONNECTICUT , USA, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Connecticut US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate fears that most Navy Veterans with mesothelioma in Connecticut will never get properly compensated because they impulsively hired a law firm to assist with a financial compensation claim. Before a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in Connecticut hires a lawyer or law firm to assist with a mesothelioma compensation the group is urging a Navy Veteran or their family to call them at 800-714-0303 for a brief discussion about financial compensation and on the spot access to attorney Erik Karst the founding partner of the law firm Karst von Oiste.

Karst von Oiste is one of the premier mesothelioma law firms in the United States and the have been assisting Navy Veterans with mesothelioma compensation for decades. www.karstvonoiste.com/

According to the Connecticut Mesothelioma Victims Center, "Connecticut is home of one of the world's largest submarine bases and we are certain most Navy Veterans with mesothelioma in Connecticut were probably exposed to asbestos on a navy submarine. A mesothelioma compensation claim involving a Navy Veteran exposed to asbestos on a submarine is a completely different deal that a Navy Veteran exposed to asbestos on a surface ship. For starters-almost everything on a US Navy Submarine is classified so unless your attorneys have experience with mesothelioma compensation claims involving a navy submarine the compensation claim will not be as good as it could have been.

"As we would like to discuss anytime if a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in Connecticut wants the very best possible financial compensation we are urging them or their family members to call us at 800-714-0303 so we can briefly explain the compensation process and introduce them to attorney Erik Karst and his remarkable colleagues at Karst von Oiste. Our top priority is seeing to it that a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in Connecticut receives the best possible compensation results." http://Connecticut.USNavyMesothelioma.Com

The Connecticut US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate offers their free services to US Navy Veterans with mesothelioma in Bridgeport, New Haven, Hartford, Stamford, Waterbury, Norwalk, Danbury, New Britain or anywhere in Connecticut. https://Connecticut.USNavyMesothelioma.Com

For the best possible treatment options in Connecticut the Connecticut US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate strongly recommends the following heath care facilities with the offer to help a diagnosed Veteran, or their family get to the right physicians at these hospitals.

* Yale Cancer Center New Haven, Connecticut http://www.yalecancercenter.org/

* Hartford Hospital Hartford, Connecticut: http://www.harthosp.org/Cancer/default.aspx

* The VA-For a state by state listing of VA Medical Centers nationwide please visit their website:https://www.va.gov/directory/guide/FindLocations.cfm.

Every US Navy ship vessel built up to 1980 contained asbestos. Extreme exposure to asbestos may have occurred to US Navy Veterans if they were assigned to a navy ship's engine room, as a machinists mate, electrician, plumber/pipefitter, mechanic, in engineering, as a repair crew member, as a crew member on a nuclear submarine or as a member of the Navy Seabees. Additionally, a US Navy Veteran could have received extreme exposure to asbestos if they were required to stay on their ship or submarine for a major repair, overhaul or retrofit at a shipyard. Asbestos exposure was so extreme on US Navy ships and submarines, about one third of all US citizens diagnosed with mesothelioma each year are Veterans of the US Navy. https://USNavyMesothelioma.Com

The states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.www.karstvonoiste.com/

For a listing of various classes of US Navy ships or submarines please visit the US Navy website on this topic: http://www.navy.mil/navydata/our_ships.asp.

We want a person with mesothelioma in Massachusetts to take their potential financial compensation seriously and we are urging them or their family to call us anytime at 800-714-0303.”

— Massachusetts Mesothelioma Victims Center

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS , USA, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Massachusetts Mesothelioma Victims Center fears that most people with mesothelioma in Massachusetts will not put a lot of thought into hiring a lawyer to assist with their financial compensation claim and as a result they will not get properly compensated. Hiring a local car accident lawyer or a local mesothelioma marketing law firm will probably not produce the best possible financial compensation results for a skilled trades worker such as a plumber, pipefitter, machinist, mechanic or an electrician with mesothelioma as the group would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. https://Massachusetts.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

According to the Massachusetts Mesothelioma Victims Center, "As opposed to offering a free generic book about mesothelioma we offer direct access to attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to get the financial compensation job done for a skilled tradesman, Navy Veteran, power plant or public utility worker with mesothelioma in Massachusetts. We are urging a person with mesothelioma in Massachusetts or their family to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 so we can try to explain the compensation process and personally introduce you to attorney Erik Karst the founding partner of Karst von Oiste.

"The law firm of Karst von Oiste is one of the nation's premier mesothelioma and they have a track record of producing superior compensation results for their clients in Massachusetts and nationwide." www.karstvonoiste.com/

If the Massachusetts Mesothelioma Victims Center had one vital compensation tip for a person with mesothelioma in Massachusetts it would be –"We want a person with mesothelioma in Massachusetts to take their potential financial compensation seriously and we are urging them or their family to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 so at a minimum we can discuss why it is vital to list all of the times or places they were exposed to asbestos and at the same time we would like to introduce the person or their family to famed attorney Erik Karst and his amazing colleagues at the law firm of Karst von Oiste.

"We want a person with mesothelioma in Massachusetts to get the best possible financial compensation results." https://Massachusetts.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.com

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Massachusetts include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, Boston Navy Yard shipyard workers, maritime workers, oil refinery workers, manufacturing workers, plumbers, welders, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Massachusetts the Massachusetts Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at these hospitals.

* The Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center in Boston for their cutting-edge mesothelioma treatment options. https://www.brighamandwomens.org

* Boston, Massachusetts, Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center: https://www. massgeneral.org/cancer/

The Massachusetts Mesothelioma Victims Center also wants to emphasize their unsurpassed free services are available to a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma statewide including Boston, Lowell, New Bedford, Worcester, Springfield, or Cambridge.

A new article by Dr. Sohail Aman reviews the symptoms, causes, risk factors of liver cancer, as well as preventive measures.

Sohail Aman, MD (N/A:N/A)

Liver malignancy can be prevented to a certain extent. Preventive measures include reducing the risk of cirrhosis by avoiding or minimizing alcohol and substance consumption.”

— Sohail Aman, MD, medical consultant (Maryland and Alabama)

MOBILE, ALABAMA, UNITED STATES, June 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Liver cancer is a malignant disease where the liver cells proliferate uncontrollably. This results in an abnormal growth of malignant cells. These tumors are destructive in nature since they gradually start invading healthy cells, turning them into malignant ones as well.

Medical Consultant Sohail Aman, has published an article on this issue, which is available on his blog at https://sohailamanmd.home.blog/

Liver cancer is not to be confused with cancers that originate is a different region or organ of the body and then spread to the liver, as such cancers are referred to as metastatic cancers. For instance, metastatic colon cancer originates in the colon and then later invades the cells of the liver, too, but this will not be classified as liver cancer. Liver cancer is of different types with the most common ones being:

* Hepatocellular carcinoma
* Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma
* Hepatoblastoma


Most people diagnosed with liver cancer start displaying certain signs and symptoms prior to the diagnosis. These indicators make the diagnosis easier, and an early diagnosis can save lives. Some of the symptoms are:

* Unexplained, sudden weight loss
* Reduced appetite
* Pain in the upper abdominal region
* Nausea and vomiting
* General weakness, drowsiness, and fatigue
* Jaundice
* Abdominal swelling
* White, chalky stools


The exact cause of liver malignancy is the changes that develop in the liver cells; such changes, which are also known as mutations, take place in the DNA. These genetic mutations then lead to increased production of the malignant cells, causing the abnormal growth mass to increase in size and invade the healthy cells as well. Trigger factors that can bring about such changes in the DNA are often diseases like chronic hepatitis infections. However, at times, liver cancer can also develop with no pre-existing underlying diseases.

Risk Factors

Certain risk factors increase the chances of some individuals of developing liver tumors. These factors include:

* A chronic infection caused by Hepatitis B and C viruses is reported to increase the risk of developing liver cancer significantly.
* Conditions such as Cirrhosis, which is essentially irreversible liver scarring, damage the tissues in the liver and increase the chances of liver tumors. This, in turn, increases your chances of developing liver cancer.
* Certain inherited liver diseases.
* Diabetes
* Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
* Aflatoxin exposure
* Excessive alcohol consumption and substance abuse


Liver malignancy can be prevented to a certain extent. Preventive measures include reducing the risk of cirrhosis by avoiding or minimizing alcohol and substance consumption. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is also very vital; this can be achieved by consuming a healthy and balanced diet, regularly exercising, being active, and avoiding alcohol consumption and smoking. Other measures include getting vaccinated against associated diseases such as hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Regular liver screenings and checkups allow doctors to assess the health of a patient’s liver and catch any early signs of liver cancer. As said earlier in this article, the earlier the diagnosis, the better the chances are for the patient to beat the cancer.

However, if you are experiencing any of the above signs and symptoms or are suffering from either of the two hepatitis viruses, it is highly advised to seek immediate medical assistance and get yourself screened for liver scarring or cancer.

Congressional Men’s Health Caucus Briefing Sheds Light on State of Men and Women’s Health

June is Men’s Health Month

Despite Years of Progress, Male Life Expectancy Declines for the 3rd Year, Increase of Suicide and Drug Overdose to Blame

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — WASHINGTON – The Congressional Men’s Health Caucus in partnership with Men’s Health Network joined a coalition of representatives from leading health, advocacy, and government organizations to hold a briefing on Capitol Hill June 19 to discuss health outcomes for men and women.

The briefing comes just one week until the end of Men’s Health Month, an annual awareness period solely dedicated to education and activities on the health and wellness of men and boys, and following the 25th year of National Men’s Health Week (June 10-16), a special awareness period recognized by Congress.

Speakers at the briefing—including representatives from PCORI (Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Center), the National Black Men’s Health Network, HealthyWomen, the Office of Population Affairs, and the National Center for Health Statistics—outlined health outcomes for men and women over the last 25 years. The average life expectancy of males and females in the U.S. has increased substantially over the last century. However, life expectancy declined between 2014-2015 for both males and females and has continued to decline for males since then.

“Often times we may find ourselves guilty of letting our health go. It becomes something that is put to the back of our minds. However, I am a firm believer in the progress and the promise of a better tomorrow. We have some of the best and brightest minds working to find cures for even the most complex ailments,” said Congressman Donald Payne Jr. (D-NJ) co-chair of the Congressional Men’s Health Caucus. “Our screening processes today are quicker and less evasive than ever before, able to catch disease early. Equally important is what we do. Our personal health starts with us. Healthy living is not simply a one-time commitment; it is the formation of habits that require a conscious effort one day at a time.”

“The health of families—men, women, and children—is the backbone to any community, which is why these discussions that include legislators, policymakers, and advocates are so crucial to the health and wellness of our nation,” said Ana Fadich Tomsic, Vice President of Men’s Health Network. “I’m glad that as we close out Men’s Health Month and the 25th year of Men’s Health Week, that the topic of health for men and boys remains relevant and continues to push toward stronger outcomes.”

“Being healthy is not something that happens overnight, it’s something that we have to work at every single day,” said Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R-OK), co-chair of the Congressional Men’s Health Caucus. “Whether it is making the bed, eating right, or getting in a full workout every morning, we have to make sure each and every day that we are doing what we can to take care of ourselves. The little successes we experience every day add up to living a healthy, disciplined life. As we approach the end of Men’s Health Month, I would like to thank Men’s Health Network for helping to raise awareness on the importance of health and wellness.”

While heart disease and cancer continue to be the main causes of death for men and women in the U.S., young men, in particular, have seen an increase in deaths due to suicide and drug-overdose, according to data from the National Center for Health Statistics of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Some 66.4 percent of drug overdoses in 2016 were due to opioids; men are more likely to die of an overdose than women.

During the meeting, speakers said that the increase in deaths included unintentional injuries— a broader category that includes unintentional drug poisoning and overdose deaths.

“Life expectancy at birth has been decreasing since 2014 [among males],” said Renee Gindi, a statistician at the National Center for Health Statistics. “We’ve seen significant increases in homicide, suicide, and unintentional injuries …We’re seeing death from all causes increase [in younger age groups]. We’ve seen substantial decreases in the life expectancy of men.”

Representatives for the nonprofit HealthyWomen said even though mortality rates have stabilized for women after a decline in 2015, the health and wellness of women remains fundamental to the health of families.

“Women are the CEOs of their family. As such, we make health care decisions for our family. We also need to be informed,” said Heidi Rosvold-Brenholtz, Senior Vice President for Strategic Engagement & Health Policy at HealthyWomen. “It’s not women’s health, it’s not men’s health, it’s the health of a unit. Two healthy houses make a whole.”

Powerhouse Attorney Takes on HIV-med Maker for Creating Damaging Drugs and Inflating Prices

SAN DIEGO, CALIF., USA, June 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Award-winning attorney, Robert K. Jenner of Jenner Law, P.C., to take on HIV-drug pharmaceutical giant, Gilead Sciences. Jenner and his team are filing lawsuits alleging Gilead’s misconduct surrounding its blockbuster antiretroviral medications containing tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF), namely, Viread, Stribild, Truvada, Atripla and Complera.

Gilead Sciences is in the hot seat and facing lawsuits nationwide that allege the company knowingly withheld, for more than a decade, a drug for the treatment of HIV that it knew was safer and more effective than a drug it had already put into the market.

Gilead developed two versions of tenofovir.  One version is called Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate (TDF); and the other is called Tenofovir Alafenamide (TAF).  Gilead ran studies, and had direct knowledge, that TAF was safer than TDF.  TDF required a 300 mg dosage to be effective, while TAF required a 25 mg dosage to be effective.  The higher the dose, the more side effects; the lower the dose, the fewer side effects. 

Both a state and federal judge in California have upheld the lawsuits after Gilead filed motions to dismiss all claims, and hundreds of cases are now moving towards trial because it seems clear that the mega biotech corporation chose “profits over people.”

The litigation highlights the lengths to which Gilead allegedly went to profit on the backs of people living with HIV. As the LGBTQ community celebrates Pride month and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, Gilead is defending its alleged choices of inflating the prices of life-saving HIV drugs and refusing to release safer medications that would not have been as dangerous to the bones and kidneys of those taking these medications.

Attorney Robert K. Jenner of Jenner Law, P.C. has been an advocate for those living with HIV for more than three decades. He wrote the country’s first legal dissertation on the subject of acquired HIV through blood and blood products and continues to work on behalf of those living with HIV as he leads a consortium of attorneys dedicated to investigating Gilead. Jenner is the former chair of the AIDS Litigation Group of the American Association for Justice and has lectured internationally on the legal rights of people impacted by HIV and AIDS. Among the many accolades Mr. Jenner has received over his three decades of experience, he has twice been named as one of America’s 50 Most Influential Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers (2017, 2018).

By retaining Mr. Jenner’s law firm to represent you against rich and powerful corporations, you can rest assured you’re being represented by top attorneys with decades of experience fighting and winning for their clients. If you or a loved one took a TDF-containing HIV medication, such as Viread, Truvada, Stribild, Atripla or Complera, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Make sure you’re getting the best representation by signing up with Jenner Law.
