Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes

Welcome to the Global Health Bioethics Network (GHBN) on e-MOPs

The GHBN is a collaboration between the five Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes (MOPs) in KenyaThailand-LaosSouth AfricaVietnam, and Malawi and the Ethox Centre at the University of Oxford. We are also partners with the Wellcome Trust Brighton and Sussex Centre for Global Health Research.

Funded through a Wellcome Trust Strategic Award, the GHBN aims to: 

  1. Promote and support ethical reflection within MOPs;
  2. Carry out ethics research across the MOPs; and
  3. Improve the capacity of the MOPs to identify and address the ethical issues in their own research.

To achieve these aims, the Network carries out a range of capacity-building activities which include: hosting an annual Summer School; providing annual capacity-building bursaries to researchers (GHBN Ethics Fellows) across the MOPs; providing education, training and mentorship to GHBN Fellows and other MOP staff; supporting MOP directors and other scientists in identifying and addressing the ethical aspects of their own research; supporting funding applications; and providing collaborative on-line ethics resources to promote cross-MOP discussion. In addition to its capacity building activities, the Network also conducts a number of important research projects into practical ethical issues relevant to the scientific and community engagement activities of the MOPs.
