Singapore: The Chinese Medical Doctor Association, a not-for-profit association representing about 2.1 million practicing physicians in China, has made a proposal to introduce a blacklist system in the country.
The proposal by the association has come after many members of the industry were found to be involved in bribery scandals associated with multinational pharmaceutical companies in the country.
The association further pointed out that this move comes after medical workers from a hospital in Fuping county, Shaanxi province, were reported earlier this month as deceiving parents that their newborn babies had lethal ailments, then selling them.
The suggestions will be discussed by the association before being presented for approval to the National Health and Family Planning Commission.
