Big Pharma: How the World's Biggest Drug Companies Control Illness is a 2006 book by British journalist Jacky Law. The book examines how major pharmaceutical companies determine which health care problems are publicised and researched.[1]

Outlining the history of the pharmaceutical industry, Law identifies what she says is the failure of a regulatory framework that assumes pharmaceutical companies always produce worthwhile products that society will want.[1]

Law has written about healthcare for 25 years, seven of them as associate editor of Scrip Magazine, a monthly magazine for the drugs industry.[2]
