Trump Chooses Alex Azar for Health and Human Services Secretary

Alex Azar

There are 2 comments on the Reuters story from Monday, titled Trump to tap ex-pharma executive Azar as us health secretary.

Azar worked at Eli Lilly and Co for a decade, including five years as president of its Lilly USA unit, and left the company in January, according to his LinkedIn page. "I don't think anybody can question his credentials from an experience perspective". We need an HHS secretary who is willing to take on the greed of the pharmaceutical industry and lower prescription drug prices, not one who has financially benefitted from this greed.

Democrats have also sought greater transparency in setting drug prices from pharmaceutical executives.

The resignation of Tom Price was seen as politically expedient after his spurious usage of private and government aircraft over commercial planes caused an uproar and instigated investigations into the wasteful practice.

He also served several years on the board of directors of the Biotechnology Innovation Organization, a drug industry lobbying group, and earlier was general counsel and deputy secretary for Health and Human Services under former Republican President George W. Bush. His supporters say that Azar's understanding of the complicated dynamics behind pharmaceuticals pricing will give him an advantage in figuring out how to make drugs more affordable.

"In his public statements, Alex Azar has made clear that he is opposed to measures to restrain prescription companies' profiteering and limit improper marketing, while favoring weaker safety approval standards". "Alex Azar will be able to hit the ground running, following his confirmation, in addressing the challenges facing Medicare and Medicaid and bringing a patient-centered, value-focused approach to healthcare policymaking".
