I was talking with my Hausa instructor this morning about movies we liked. I mentioned The Constant Gardener. She hadn’t heard of it, so I told her about the plot. She cut me off half-way through, and said, “This happened in Kano.”
I just did some Google-ing, and it turns out the film was inspired by Meningitis drug tests Pfizer did in Kano in 1996. Can anyone point me to a good overview of what happened, that gets beyond this Wikipedia entry?
