Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes

Exploring the Experiences and Challenges of IRB member in Addis Ababa


   Dear Dina, Thank you! 

          The data collection process was somehow good. I had faced some challenges during the data collection process like some IRB members were not willing to attend the interview process and some were not responding to the request at all on time. I have a plan to interview a total of 20 IRB members from different research institute and universities (four IRB members were selected from each Institutes and Universities, three research institutes collected information was saturated before I made an interview to the fourth selected participant).

      Fortunately I made an interview to ten voluntary IRB members from two Research institutes and two medical college universities. I could not conduct the interview process for the Addis Ababa City Administration Health Bureau Ethical Review Board members because they did not had the capacity to review the study proposals and provide an ethical approval letter at all but facilitates the way for the approved studies to be conducted following ICH GCP and Ethical principles. 

Currently we are on finalizing the analysis process to prepare the study report.

     Best regards,
