Many bioethical papers have been written about the international research in humans sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry. The perspective of social justice, which takes into account the social determinants of health in each place, however, has been lacking in most of these papers. This article offers some contributions to the bioethics of international human-subjects research based on social justice.
