Richard Gladwell McGown
Dr Richard Gladwell McGown is a British doctor accused of experimenting on black patients in Zimbabwe. He allegedly conducted medical tests using new drugs and anesthetics without the authority of the Zimbabwe Drugs Control Council and the knowledge of patients. A parliamentary committee probing health services claimed up to 6 of McGown's patients died as a result. A Harare court found him guilty of professional negligence in the deaths of two children. It ruled that he gave unusually high dosages of morphine when administering anesthetics to 5 patients who died between 1986 and 1992. Four of the five who died were Black. The fifth was of Greek descent.
