Are human clinical trials in the third world countries ethical and justified?


I wasn't aware of this at first but it appears that large multi-national pharmaceutical companies go to the third world countries (e.g. Kenya, India) and do their clinical trials there. Most 'volunteers' are not even aware that they're "lab rats". These lab rats are humans as well. It seems that the governments are willing to just close one eye and pretend no such thing is happening in their own soil. It does increase the pace of the drug approval so that WE can readily use them if the need arises. SO what do you think?
