UNESCO guidance on ethics and human rights slammed

Full SciDev.Net article:

"A recent UNESCO declaration on ethical and human rights aspects of medical research has been heavily criticised by an international group of specialists in the field, who say it has little value.

"The bioethicists were writing in this month's special issue of Developing World Bioethics, which is devoted to analysing the declaration. Most of the authors agree that while making the declaration was a laudable effort, the document is riddled with conceptual problems."
