International Bioethics

Fogarty supports the development of sound international bioethics policy and global ethical review capacity. Fogarty is a co-founder and funder of the Global Forum on Bioethics in Research, which provides a unique platform for stakeholders in health research in the developing world engage in dialogue about ethical concerns. The Center also provides bioethics research training grants to help domestic and foreign institutions develop bioethics training programs related to performing research in developing countries; and a collection of Bioethics resources for researchers, committees, teachers and students.

The current edition of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) International Compilation of Human Research Standards lists over 1,000 laws, regulations and guidelines on human subject protections in over 100 countries.

Public Private Partnerships

The DISPPE plays a key role in developing Public Private Partnerships (PPP) as a means for Fogarty to accomplish its public health mission through the development of synergistic relationships with outside entities. More information about Public Private Partnerships at the NIH.
