Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes
I am happy to inform you that a number of developments have occurred since my last update in November. Following the approval of my proposal by the Postgraduate Committee in December 2015, the protocol was submitted to the research ethics committee and the outcome of the review is still pending. Considering that some of the consent documents and data collection instruments that will be used for the study need to be translated from English to Zulu before data collection, we thought it would be prudent to first submit the documents to the ethics committee in English. Once provisional ethics approval is granted on the English versions, I will work on the translations so as to minimize time loss and costs. I hope all institutional approvals will be in place during the first quarter of the year so that by April data collection will be in full swing.
