Reform Informed Consent Now

Studies to Reference

What should I look for?

Read the above studies(or any medical research that you are interested in), specifically focus on research methods. Look for WHO is targeted, WHERE they are from, HOW it is tested. Specifically note, that populations are poor and from underprivileged regions of their countries, note further the targeting of heavily victimized groups, specifically underprotected LGBTQ+ community members, and finally, take note of the words, "double blind study".


During your personal research take a look at how they go about informed consent. If it says written consent, that should be a red flag. Use this to increase your own skeptical inquiry and to start your own dialogue on the issue of informed consent.


Remember: The fact that it does not personally affect you does not negate the suffering associated with these practices and most importantly, confront dialogue that says this is not an issue "because it is not happening here," this very mindset is what enables exploitation and oppression of the third world.
