Have you ever wondered where the equipment used by the NHS comes from? Maybe you should.

Surgical instruments used in the NHS, are made in terrible working conditions in Pakistan and other developing countries, by children as young as seven. Migrant workers from some of world’s poorest countries are working in bonded labour to produce disposable gloves with risk of burns from hot latex and inadequate fire protection. And this is just one example.

Do you think it is wrong for workers in developing countries to risk their lives to produce medical supplies?
