Good Pharma Scorecard
We rank bio-pharmaceutical companies and new drugs on ethics and public health performance criteria, focusing on issues that are critical to patients.
The Good Pharma Scorecard ranks companies and new medicines on their clinical trial transparency and data-sharing performance, taking into account ethics and legal standards. Subsequent versions of the scorecard will also evaluate the integrity of clinical trial designs, the accessibility of medicines, drug marketing practices, and other ethics and human rights issues.

Transparency is key to maximizing the value of generated trial data and people’s participation in trials
Opacity can drive up costs of research and care
Transparency and data-sharing enable validation and replication of study findings
