Out of the Armchair: A Bioethics Student's Search for Practical Knowledge in Kenya
Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 2004; 1(1): 20-26
This paper recounts the efforts of a Bioethics student to understand the experience of human subjects of medical research in Kenya. Although the endeavor resulted in more questions that answers, it served to highlight areas where the current system of protections has failed to secure the well-being of those involved. It concludes that, in addition to existing considerations, ethical review ought to include another kind of information: that which can be gained only from listening to the feelings and experiences related by subjects themselves.
