The Vietnamese government has proposed a total ban on drug advertisements in the mass media. The Ministry of Health said the ban it proposes would even bar medals granted by fairs and thank-you letters from patients. Other types of ads to be barred would be those concerning results of clinical trials, drug approvals and instructions on disease prevention. Advertisements that use physicians, pharmacists, officials or medical organizations to promote drugs also would be banned under the draft legislation.
