COMREC Approval --- Bioethics of biometrics within the health care system and medical research in Malawi

Hi All,

I am delighted to inform you all that my research proposal titled “Bioethics of biometrics within the health care system and medical research in Malawi” has just been approved by the College of Medicine Research and Ethics Committee (COMREC). In this regard, I am planning to pilot my data collection tools in the next few days.

Great news Mphatso. Really reassuring. I am just about the write the ethics form for a project I am going to be doing on 'embedding ethics in global health research'. Good luck with the pilot phase. It will be good to share experiences at the summer school!
