Article: Balancing Expectations: An Unmet Need In The Orphan Disease Arena

There are between 6000 and 8000 rare diseases in the world, and one in ten people in Europe and the US have a rare disease; 75% of rare diseases affect children, and 30% of rare disease patients die before the age of 51. Over 95% of these rare diseases have no treatment options available—instilling a devastating burden on patients and their families2. While the pharmaceutical industry is focusing on innovation to address this significant unmet need among patients, such dedication is not entirely altruistic. Commercial opportunity in orphan medicinal products (OMPs) is estimated to reach $209bn by 2022 and constitute one of the largest growing parts within the prescription drug segment3, continuously drawing investment from small, medium and large companies alike.

Research: Drinking Water-Private Or Public: A Case Study Of The Canadian Industry

Within Canada, the subject of Water-Taking Permits for the purpose of resale (bottled water) has created controversy which is both historical and ongoing (The Council of Canadians, 2010; Bueckert, 2016). Current data indicates that almost 9 million Canadian residents depend on their local groundwater for potable water use and that these same sources also supply water to larger communities, and further that many of these groundwater sources are also used by businesses (The Government of Ontario, 2013; ECCC, 2013). Several stakeholders are involved, namely: respective levels of government, the industry engaged in Water-Taking for bottled resale, Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) advocating for water security, and consumers who are the ultimate end users of water either bottled or from source. Within the theory domains, research and discussion on Governance, Social Justice and Social Goods, and Resource and Environmental Economics, along with Public and Private Partnerships are explored with a view to understanding the theortetical components of contemplated research in additional to secondary technical data and information. The research seeks to analyse the persectives from the stakeholders via interviews and compare the results with a view towards better understanding the issue and identifying the views of Canadian consumers as an important economic factor.
