Bulgarian Nurses, Human Rights, and the Risks of Giving Aid to Developing Nations

August 1, 2007

Should developed nations help developing countries – even if those countries have sponsored terrorism? What if that assistance includes desperately-needed health care? This hour we’ll discuss the plight of five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor who were convicted and twice sentenced to death for allegedly injecting hundreds of Libyan children with HIV. They were released after eight years in prison last week. Our guests will be documentarian Mickey Grant, whose film “INJECTION” covered the subject and Rick Halperin, Director of SMU’s Human Rights Education Program.
