Today, we'll explore three stories from Africa. In April, Pfizer reached an agreement to pay millions to settle a criminal case involving drug testing in Nigeria. The trial of the antibiotic Trovan killed 11 children and harmed scores of others. The story was first widely told in a series by the Washington Post. We'll talk to investigative reporter Joe Stephens.
Then, we'll hear from a nurse who's traveled the world helping victims of medical emergencies with Doctors Without Borders. She's just returned from Zimbabwe, which is getting over a serious outbreak of Cholera.
And, we'll talk to Wesleyan students who are planning to build a school for girls in Kenya's largest slum.
