Former drug company executive Alex Azar has been sworn in as the head of the Department of Health and Human Services. Azar is a former executive of the multibillion-dollar pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly. He was confirmed by the Senate last week, despite a controversy over Eli Lilly’s decision to test its highly profitable erectile dysfunction drug Cialis on children in efforts to extend a patent that would soon expire. Azar was the president of Eli Lilly’s U.S. operations when the company decided to test the sex drug on children in order to increase their profits.
