Different standards of medicines information provided in these three countries suggest that pharmaceutical promotion needs to be better controlled at the international level. Keywords: Pharmaceutical advertisements, promotion, regulation, Malaysia, Australia Introduction Journal advertising is used by pharmaceutical companies as a marketing strategy to promote pharmaceutical products to health professionals. The Ethical Criteria for Medicinal Drug Promotion was established to support and encourage the improvement of health care through the rational use of medicinal drugs [ 7 ].
It sets out the general standards for ethical promotion of pharmaceutical products that can be used as a model bygovernments [ 7 ]. Contrary to the WHO Ethical Criteria, the IFPMA code does not require information on warnings, major interactions, and content of active ingredient per dosage form or regimen and name of other ingredients known to cause problems to be provided in advertisements.
The IFPMA code requires that all promotional material should be consistent with locally approved product information [ 8 ]. The US is a country with a long-established control system by governmental agencies [ 9 ]. Australia [ 11 ] and Malaysia [ 12 ] are examples of developed and emerging countries, respectively, where pharmaceutical companies self-regulate their promotional activities by implementing voluntary codes of conduct which complement the requirements set by government legislation.
The codes, regulations and legislation provide standards for all types of promotional materials for prescription medicines including all printed and audiovisual promotional materials. In Australia, pharmaceutical advertising is regulated by government legislation through the Therapeutic Goods Act [ 13 ]. Medicines Australia, which represents research-based pharmaceutical companies, administers a code of conduct for promotional practice [ 11 ].
Similarly, in Malaysia pharmaceutical advertising for prescription medicines is regulated by government legislation through the Medicine Advertisement and Sale Act [ 14 ].
The Pharmaceutical Association of Malaysia PhAMA , which represents pharmaceutical companies, administers a code of conduct as a guide for the advertising of prescription medicines [ 12 ].
Failure to comply with the codes will result in sanctions including discontinuation or modification of any practice that is determined to breach the code, the issuance of retraction statements, fines, suspension or expulsion from Medicines Australia or the PhAMA [ 11 , 12 ]. FDA may issue regulatory letters to any pharmaceutical company that is found to be in breach of the laws.
The letters may serve as a basis for additional regulatory action including recalls or seizures of promotional materials or activities, and criminal prosecution [ 16 ]. Most pharmaceutical companies are international companies.
Generally, every pharmaceutical company has their own set of ethical standards based on the standards set forth in the IFPMA code of conduct. According to the codes that are publicly available [ 17 - 19 ], promotional materials should support the appropriate use of medicines by presenting information accurately, without exaggeration and must follow all relevant local laws and company policies and procedures. Despite the existence of regulations and control of medicine promotion, the quality of medicines information in journal advertising has been questioned.
A systematic review [ 20 ] identified nine studies that evaluated provision of medicines information.
