With just $0.05 a day, this Blueprint will make us strong, firm warriors in the battle to end poverty-->

Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Big pharmaceutical companies are increasingly outsourcing clinical trials to developing countries to create new medicine. Taking advantage of relaxed regulation, it's the world's poorest who are paying the price.

"I don't like coming here where my son is buried. He would be five now", says Suzana. Her three-month-old baby died along with thirteen others in a clinical trial by British lab GSK. With a population of 41 million, Argentina has become the preferred destination for drug testing, where a third of the population depend on free healthcare. "They were so pushy; they would harass people until they accepted to take part in the trial", says paediatrician Leandro Gamba. While some of the most powerful pharmaceutical companies benefit, victims and their families receive no explanation, compensation or justice when things go wrong. "There is no law, no national agency, no controls."
