Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes
The Global Health Bioethics Network 2nd Annual Summer School began this week! In the first two days this group of 38 participants from at least ten different countries has bonded over shared interests in ethics, community engagement, and other issues affecting health research in low income countries. Vibrant and passionate discussions have taken place on topics such as payments and benefits to research participants, ethical issues encountered in the field by frontline data collectors, and 'what is a community'?, to name just a few. We're half-way through the summer school, and already so many new ideas for collaboration across the MOPs have been generated after hearing each others' work. It's been incredibly inspiring.
