Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes
Happy New Year to everyone, I hope we all had a good rest, recharged and that we are ready to face 2015 with renewed energy.
Over a past few days Malawi has experienced continuous heavy rains as such there have been floods in many locations, floods that have damaged properties and claimed lives. Unfortunately the weather experts are predicting more rains over the next few day.
As you are all aware my project is almost concluded, over the past months I had been working on coding and analyzing the data that was collected. This process is almost complete now, there are less than 4 transcripts that I am left with to code. While these processes have been going on I have also been doing literature searches as part of preparations for write ups.
Without pre-emptying what we are learning from the data, preliminary findings indicate a greater disparity amongst a wide range of areas mainly between different social economic classes, education and gender just to mention a few. Hope to share more in the due course.
It is planned that the project will be completed by end of February if all things go according to plan and hope to continue sharing my experiences of the project.
I would like to once again thank the entire GHBN team for giving me this opportunity and Wellcome Trust Global Health Bioethics Network Bursaries Scheme for awarding the bursary to me.
Lastly I would also like to thank the following people for their timely and valuable support, Mike Parker, Nicola Desmond, Dina Rippon and all the GHBN members.
