We are excited to announce the publication of Research Ethics in Africa: A Resource for Research Ethics Committees, a new book that focuses on research ethics issues in Africa by Mariana Kruger, Paul Ndebele (FABTP alumnus), and Lyn Horn.


Funded by an EDCTP capacity development grant, the book brought together past EDCTP and Fogarty trainees who now actively work in the field of research ethics, to write a book on research ethics, from a uniquely African perspective.


Part I introduces the book, provides a history of research ethics in Africa and the discussed the MARC project (the Mapping of Research ethics committees throughout Africa). Part II  ‘The Research Ethics Committee’ comprises five chapters and covers the operation of an REC including running a meeting, developing standard operating procedures etc. Part III covers many specific topics such as traditional medicine research, public health research, vulnerable participants, risk benefit assessment and many others.  Part IV is a section with valuable resources such as a chapter on Educational resources and the Part V contains some useful templates.
