    • General suspicion (why is this information being collected)
    • General lack of transparency in the medical field (confidentiality seems to apply in the sector)
    • Common view that the public lack interest in such matters and therefore there is no need for information to be in the public domain
    • What are the lessons learned so far?
    • There is need for increased lobbying for full data disclosure in pharmaceutical sector

    • Bureaucracy is still a major challenge!!!!
