The Tripoli 6 are health care workers accused of infecting 400 young patients in a Libyan hospital with HIV. They are scheduled to be executed on December 19. Effect Measure reports on the scientific evidence that exonerates the Tripoli 6. Effect Measure is also asking that blogs spread the word, in the hope that the plight of the Tripoli 6 reach a broader audience and that an international outcry might yet persuade the Libyan government to spare these innocent workers.
Jurisdynamics thanks Thoughts in a Haystack and Pharyngula for publicizing this story and Effect Measure's role in trying to save the Tripoli 6.
