this is what we discover inside machines interrogate the donors the volunteers answer the medical questions at electronic terminals one single physical examination measuring blood pressure. this is mainly to avoid the donors fainting while donating blood which would slow down the entire chain. not a single chair in the room is empty an endless stream of donors with no time to recover after the donation twelve hours a day seven days a week. in view of such summary checks everything is based on what people say pay donations entailed a certain risk they encourage donors to lie about their health. such compensation also attracts a high risk population that sometimes has secrets to hide. if i began.
a and found their. pm eastern for a fair question but the basic law know enough to use this computer no no no to say at all if i was lying when i had to move over two years old it looks like it's part of the bricks but it actually is what i miss in a blue to faint make it look like i'm doing err on the side. you know i have the same time though we will go in the money and if it drills. to just next person a last summer the big bang around here is k two. and so you know me if they was the test now for drugs they don't show up and they don't eat an ice hockey for about three to five minutes a day you chase and again. you know got away to the next couple days backed up in
the past. it's free money. i give up these past. fix. the people selling drugs they are used to. because some of. the farmers even if you know even if. they clients will gas somewhere to go every time they make some money ok listen. you give me. the plasma car. i'll give you a bag. because i know you go is going to make sure that you go down because i'm not going to take no type of losses i won't drop you off in there i'm drop you off there make sure you get into your pay work and anomalies because i know i normally get my money for sure and when you don't you can come back again we do the same process again.
and this is how the blood business attracts the drug business and all that goes with it trafficking exploitation and health risks for the donors. are aware of all this we wanted to ask them if they noticed traces of drugs in their donors plasma. but it's still impossible to get access tensions rise the security services asked us to leave which we did. why was our presence bothering them so much. you know to interview. and they you know walk because they thought it was something that they saw an angel all right. you guys to be festooned with your cameras to interview this place i mean what do you got.
we're doing a documentary. about the. and class not doing ours their complaint that they call it complain that if they felt like you were harassing the arrests in the dorms coming out management just advised that they want you guys to buy trespassing which means if you walk out of the parking lot they will have their security sign charges against you guys for trust that's fine but they thank you very much and yes very much. back in switzerland there are many questions about compensation exploitation and concern about donors how does all this affect the drugs we use what control do we have over imported plasma. first of all we wanted to see tamara to show her images. around the state. with drugs you don't. pay. and i don't approve create the
best. of the oh clearly show. it. to seek out pay ok let me put this. up with a good omen throw kosoff at the district to shift the. obvious that you also do not leak out of the lake of lake at eight a you'll already be feeling disturbed madly decisional thing if you need to feel involved you know. this to cut this loop that. this is. the swiss medical experts reassured us that the plasma for swiss drugs didn't come from paid donors. was due to all the people. the.
fun of all to document. it all is still i'm sure that. all those those cold. opals. it's all to spend to see that quote even. if it savages pledge event as it does unique i don't know i mean i mean both iced all but it's all the spin from the top of the spending and the don't mean a hatred theo's it as it is. obvious that mitch this ignition to the models into civil rights would all. been continuous but salt. and humanity. in industry terms the money paid to donors is compensation not payment for a play on words in germany for example donors may receive
a small fee which is limited to three times a month but the fees offered in the usa are much higher enough to let the poorest survive. keep that prefab and sound don't depress mouth they. do need to that's not the fancy free us does that assist irish i said this is south and if i'm not so i see you and his creation of us the truth and asked. to spend it to itself if you didn't need to us the house and financial. system c.e.o. of. a plasma master file a several hundred page document ten which the origin of the plasma is listed countless technical details but nothing about the reality visibly the swiss medic experts don't know more about it would have it is if you are the clinic don't.
was it as unique this is said by example the tough. most i think of us best. not in . this. or does it make sense for the legislator to ask so few questions the industry hides behind the trade secret keeping the authorities in the dark. and. the socialist congressman j.f. steer is an expert in the swiss health system he finds the pharmaceutical industry's lack of transparency an acceptable option out in all to pieces to sell. at a sample reporting a movie made yeah that's why it's all in the script that you're able to it's it's own swine and yet you don't if you get to see the need for the full face offs as to last opacity profits lack of monitoring to what extent is public health at
risk through this system what threats does it pose to patients and donors. danielle t so dean of the faculty of medicine of lowe's and university has long been head of the studies blood center although he was generally reassuring he pointed out the risks as good and when you send. some sort of press madden anything can. be done. quite a few me. off it would fit me could the type of ice you're on new government to deny. the city about to get better share. with that. city putting at hollister a key that p.t. don't know maybe desh hard and at least fifty two didn't it both that. zero risk doesn't exist. that it will be as we are reminded by the scandal of contaminated blood that hit europe including the swiss red cross and france. don't feel cool.
you know i don't you don't feel demeaned don't enough don't get called a lot has been stabbed you see in. three d. if you don't need to acknowledge you all three you don't want to pause reconnect i mean if all of you lose your feet up. front then the movie that you did after the scandal sanitary checks were increased world wind. the plasma pools are now cleaned using methods that are said to be highly efficient. new sort of stuff it will. suit need you can use. the shortage of me in that it is down as it. is he metallic just in lille he's head of the blood center for the north of france the largest transfusion center in france he's one of the people traumatized by the
blood contamination scandal in a very difficult day that tradition in its most. minute. yes what it is does hold up a boy and it was a. fixture of his own to keep it up. you know keep in. mind. this is it makes no sense to the people people are going to just buy drugs. you know that's. all. of them in this show. and also to this. day the checks are considered effective at least as far as known risks are concerned but if there was a new virus slipping through we could spread more quickly due to globalization. to reduce these risks wouldn't the best way be for each country to produce its own
plasma. that would be preferable according to the world health organization self-sufficiency is definitely one of the aims that show promotes in terms of the goal that countries are trying to get to the goal is not self-sufficiency soley for self-sufficiency sake it's because systems that are self-sufficient tend to be safer and tend to provide better access but there are many parts of the world that are not self-sufficient and have to depend on outside sources for for blood donation and so for us it's an aim that much of the world needs to work towards but we're not there yet. however much the w.h.o. may state the importance of self-sufficiency the world market isn't following the us is exporting more plasma and soon europe won't be able to do without this cheap raw material. in many parts of the world they've made decisions two in particular
in europe and several countries some scandinavian countries france are making decisions to. basically privatized or to move into a private management of these types of donation systems. yet there is a saying. i think that on the cheap. and then we went through all the countries let's. get right to do is come to that he said if we give them everything in.
this country. this is what we don't. this tent how we are in such a country. doesn't listen to the ones at the same time. nor think i'm going to. assimilate the solution that i feel like a good one. because if you feel. the minutes of kong were not that got a good mood believe me again you know what to do with the phone the computer without the plane. would come back to the three story you have to see. the. if you move the. blue moon. the stars the wealthy areas of the italy going bust and we should save them because they're going. well again the social bank the e.c.b. a jag they have already printed fifteen sixteen trillion dollars to bail out their
friends their oligarch friends during some stupid thousand and eight and they've said they signal to the marketplace that we've got another fifteen sixteen seventeen trillion dollars to print to make as many errors as you want keep making bad loans keep borrowing money at zero percent interest rate to buy assets of precious. paintings of shadows doesn't make any of the. problems begin and since a nato member and sixteen she and the skull smikle and signed deep trouble and it's kind of retard it's not europe a surrounded by my enemy and one of them at the certain moment was president and what about russia you know it better than me not to which pull intel relations are now. despite the checks being in place the experts cannot rule out the possibility of
a new. iris this fear for health care is a main feature of the new was in france in july two thousand and fifteen the farmer obtained the liberalisation of the market the swiss company was authorized to sell its plasma and the drugs derived from it to all french hospitals until van the french blood center had had the monopoly this intrusion is worrying michelle most and he the director of the powerful federation of volunteer donors. so we you know. are you going to show that she didn't you don't tell. us this individual . piece on. the quit if you will at best it's on its own there now it says. oh yes it's that. c fool. he's also not the only reason i called don't. go to now i'll tell you maybe.
you do need to put me off well on this one pushed on you don't know if you don't you. don't even you are you. the best not all of us my own only when you vote. who are going to be so sick. she said you have to be kidding me to come on david. on that as i tell her no it's all she sees i tell her no just wanted i bought the mr t. he couldn't remember rip the small o.p.o. anyone else gets the. media. don't cycle social get a big smile or he ended up. i think you got money when you don't but then they'll. push one of my own cheek he will. repress mouth.
off. yet. yes on the best golf course can be cos i mean. it's come from a. superb school. hope the sequels to about your dymo who. didn't supes daws the field made the game oh. leave your. kids. notice him so mr obama played on to. that sort of get it son might get a. feel for what we need don't lose you really could look less mock us. so just most of all the clothes you ended up being you know. market liberalisation
increased sanitary risks. designed to farm i have to say in response to these fears after many months of investigation and countless requests the company still refuses any interview. we went to their headquarters located in the time in the canton of spirits. on a mission my book. did the kind of a. yapping for the. notion. that. a different time. will happen because if that was your mind if you're not just on our properties the only the best thing to do is if you could leave the building at the moment and then not as thomas sit we will consider your questions and come back with us with through the appropriate through the appropriate channels
ok so you you will answer my questions we will as you. he just said that it will answer all questions. on the police's request our camera man left the premises. the head of communications asked us to ask our questions in writing promising us he passed them on to the shareholders. clearly nothing is decided without the approval of market share the founder and single owner of dr pharma. the company doors closed to us once more. we had a long list of questions not only with regard to the sanitary risks but also the company's methods. on the plasma markets up to pharma isn't the most important player but its sales have already reached one point five billion euros and are sorry its business practices have often roused the
authorities suspicions. on the meaning of the city's resists without its good you shouldn't be implicated means likely to be told i think you'd be. in. at the end of two thousand and fifteen the former portuguese prime minister was arrested for corruption. allegedly received funds from iraq to farm when he was a consultant in brazil with a swiss company was involved in a huge case known as the blood band pyar scandal aka pharma is suspected of bribing ministry of health officials the case has still not been judged and the company continues its activities in brazil. such political connections are worrying the french donor federation. has first hand experience of the swiss company sensibility over this matter. not us you know we cooked all my tea at.
the. new summit we need. the now five of. them east with us all to. book a. mission she did about a planet called new your war on weapon in moline greg a place you don't defeat us us a typical to have taught us when you must be. please. don't go another day bucky a new to me cedar. key and if you should be eased. as he'll he. why he don't was alternate else he knew. not thought it to he he had removed and should not get it sees all quickly he or she had it she chimp question edge about he either miss you not get to discipline or not to hold on yes deep. no way that if you know.
also met you. you can all have all seen it to prophesy my exact. development is ultimately. when we visited the headquarters to farm the promised answers to our questions few weeks later the head of communications informed us that none of them would be answered without explaining why. there was only one solution laughed travel to heidelberg both gone marbury's home. logon to me tell. me it's been for
the nines on my list. i don't know. how old. gong margaery was incommunicado he asked the police to let us know couldn't hack. it does it come out of the dose. that. at least in them on that island i come out of this yes please he says in doubt just. so our questions will remain unanswered the origin of the plasma its payment the risks linked to donor poverty drug detection and the likelihood of new epidemics. why doesn't dr pharma provide any answers to the questions of tomorrow and thousands of patients.
not in not in a few. minutes. i'm cleveland sidewalks these questions seem to reserve. selling their plasma will always be a lesser evil to those with no choice. for as long as people in europe and elsewhere need plasma the pharmaceutical industry will meet their demand. to see america everything has to be rationed out. but outlining nothing will. be easy when the market crashes everything says down no government checks. so what can we do not to basil and i still be running that go get a couple dollars out of right wing tap these are real. special what they want to know that. mark
was relieved he could for. and they give us plasma and they receive twenty dollars . oh is your blood pressure it was pretty good i wrote it down it was less than you have to. say you know it was one twenty nine over eighty two which is pretty good what are you going to do now do you want to go home and rest yeah i pretty much want to take it slow think about it to go home or regroup i'd take a quick power nap you know that. mark and tamara are connected by an invisible thread. the plasma industry means their distress is inseparable. them a clinical look at facetious. would answer that especially don't commit such matt. smith that makes. for me to shame. to see.
then got a session on the nod that they know. by then is a shift the long. haul are stuck in the clear not a set of choices going on more. certainly not so with. them you know so it was revealed to the pope multiple injuries among current america so for them to keep sophie hold most of the work but the show's real your mars on the phone to the book and if you can book a political social services for your age but i don't know it's a book in a moral sense of what my. own i'm a bit of nothing but i am a puff allowed me to see it the somethin then said he'd walk like a don lemon not something not set of. the hamas led us and lived to tell us look
ma but that's what i can now maybe i maybe. i think that. i think the u.s. russia relationship is very important and has suffered and we need to make it better there's no question about it we need to cooperate on so many issues on nuclear weapons from syria on iran on energy on trade. limits probably didn't. do much to it with.
payoffs and how big is days of on t g twenty why it's like that german city it's resulted in hundreds of injuries and lisa protested. despite the trouble outside though there was some progress made inside the talks as president putin and trump held a much anticipated first meeting resulting right now of the syria cease fire agreement to tell you about that as well this coming thirty minutes plus. c n n's accused of blackmailing the creator of the.
