Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes

Update from Elvis at MLW: Plans for Fieldworkers' Fellowship

Last year there were a number of hiccups that made this project delay; one of them was obtaining ethical approval and this even affected other activities line up on the timeline.  As the year is just starting, we will make sure that other remaining activities such as data collection are prioritized. As shared in the previous blog, everything is set except for a few areas needing final touches other than that i look forward to another successful year.

Hi Elvis, what were the concerns of the ethics committee?

Comment by Elvis Moyo on February 2, 2016 at 10:40

Hi Miliswa and Maureen, thanks for the best wishes. Phaik there wasn't much from ethics committee except that they wanted a clarification on paying overheads; initially most MLW studies were not paying overheads until sometime last year when this changed. it was unfortunate in a way that my submission was done during that period so there were a lot of discussions which delayed my approval.
