Glaxo case shines light on China's medical bribery

A patient rests in a ward at a hospital in Beijing, China, Wednesday, July 31, 2013. Low salaries and skimpy budgets drive doctors, nurses and administrators to make ends meet by accepting money from patients, drug suppliers and others. Accusations this month that GlaxoSmithKline employees bribed Chinese doctors to prescribe its drugs brought international attention to the flow of illicit money. But to China’s public, the practice has long been common knowledge.(AP Photo/Ng Han Guan)
