TED: Boghuma Kabisen Titanji: Ethical riddles in HIV research - Boghuma Kabisen Titanji (2012)

TED Talks Daily (SD video) show

Summary: It’s an all too common story: after participating in an HIV clinical trial, a woman in sub-Saharan Africa is left without the resources to buy a bus ticket to her health clinic, let alone to afford life-saving antiretrovirals. Boghuma Kabisen Titanji asks an important question: how can researchers looking for a cure make sure they’re not taking advantage of those most affected by the pandemic?
