Dr. Nandini Kumar creates a bioethics training program specially tailored to India's unique culture and research environment
Fogarty aims to strengthen research bioethics expertise in developing countries by providing resources and information to bioethicists, research ethics committee members, researchers, students, and everyone else involved in international health research. In keeping with its wider commitment to building the capacity to conduct research in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), Fogarty believes it is important to build in-country bioethics capacity. This enables local ethics review of research, improves research into the distinctive ethical problems in LMICs, and increases the representation of different voices in on-going global discussions of the ethics of health research.
