US government via the Public Health Service, the National Institutes of Health, and the Pan American Health Sanitary Bureau funded experiments on STDs headed up by Doctor John Cutler in Guatemala. The experiment infects over 1,500 people in by either giving free access to syphilis infected prostitutes, injections, pouring bacteria onto men’s penises, or exposing to open wounds. Other people were given gonorrhea or chancroid.



The US surgeon general of the time Thomas Parran Jr. was also aware of the experiments, and even stated the only reason they were doing the study in Guatamala was because “we couldn’t do such an experiment in this country”
