INJECTION

In Libya in 1999, five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor were arrested and convicted of infecting over four hundred Libyan children with HIV in a Benghazi hospital. Libyan dictator Moammar Khadaffi proclaimed before the trial that the nurses conspired with the American CIA and the Israeli Mossad to maliciously infect the children. The accused, now known as The Benghazi Six, are still in a Libyan prison awaiting re-trial.


Widespread reuse of disposable syringes is responsible for as many as seven million cases of AIDS in Africa. Public health officials are reluctant to discuss this problem, perhaps in fear that Africans will avoid critical medical care, such as inoculations for malaria and other virulent diseases. The thrust of public AIDS prevention campaigns is on safe sex, and healthcare risks are critically overlooked.


In this investigative documentary, Mickey Grant travels to Kenya, Bangkok, Sofia, Benghazi, Tripoli, Rome and London in an attempt to discover the truth. He follows the trail of syringes from hospital to garbage dump, and then back into Africa’s health care system.


You'll hear moving testimony from leaders of the World Health Organization, Amnesty International, African government officials, the Khadaffi opposition, journalists, medical scientists, doctors, and health care workers. You'll also hear from one of the accused, the son of Moammar Kaddafi, a spokesman for the infected children, and other participants.


Could these healthcare workers have committed this horrific crime? Or, are they scapegoats to divert attention from institutional shortcomings? Is Moammar Khadaffi responsible for this tragedy? Is re-use of contaminated syringes a common practice in Libya and the rest of Africa? Are safer syringes available, and if so, why aren't they in common use?

These questions are explored in INJECTION.

walahi so sad really, its the children and the family who are suffering at the end of the day.

i havent really managed to watch all the documentary yet, will do just as soon as i have the time inshallah, thanks for the up load anglo, very interesting.

personnaly it wouldnt really surprise me at all if it is an inside job but who knows.

i remember when my cousin was born, he needed anti-biotics and they had to be injected into him, so me and my uncle drove this little 1 week old baby all over hospitals in tripoli looking for needles because each hospital we went to would tell us that they dont have needles in stock, un-believable finnaly after something like 3 hours we managed to come across 1 needle, for a country that is so rich in its natuarl resources it's failing in health standards and thats just the start of the failure towards its people.

7asbi allah wa ni3mal wakeel.

as you put it whiteafrican, libyan medical care has a lot to answer for. I think this case has become international and therefore an international court should be set up to find out the real culprits behind this massacre of the children.

Anlolibyan,
Who the culprits are we will never know.It is sickening where children are used for the purpose of whatever..........

AngloLibyan said...

absolutely, trabilsia.
not only the children and their families that will continue to suffer but most of the Libyan population who will always feel this pain in their hearts.
Allah bless Libya and its people.
