Nepal: Drug Testing

Where people in Nepal used as human guinea pigs? International Nepal Solidarity Network links to a story that states that “Between 1995 and 2003, the US government carried out the trial of a new vaccine for Hepatitis E on Nepal soldiers and now, that the vaccine is reported to be successful, questions are being raised about how ethical the test was.”
