Well in my understanding of the goverment and medicine . The goverment does not have much say . When I studyed the History of Medicine it was more individuals who made the discoverys found out about medicine and how the body works etc.. As to the Periods of Time . There was no goverment in the Prehistoric time . There were discoverys in the Roman and Egyptian Period but once again only by individuals . Through History there have been many disoverys in Medical Science . Alot in the 19th centry . The goverment might have funded them but I am sure it was mainly individuals who discovered these advancements .
