Dr. Solomon Kumbi Hawas

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

Dr. Solomon Kumbi Hawas resides in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where he is an Associate Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Addis Ababa University (AAU).  Dr. Hawas also serves as a member of the AAU Medical Faculty IRB, is the vice chair of the National Research Ethics Review Committee, is the director of the Clinical Epidemiology Unit at AAU Medical Faculty, and teaches ethics as part of the postgraduate OB-GYN curriculum. He obtained his medical degree and completed his residency at AAU.


Dr. Hawas has practiced, published, presented, and taught extensively in the area of reproductive health. His interests in bioethics are largely shaped by his wealth of experience as an OB/GYN.  Dr. Hawas is particularly concerned with the intricacies of obtaining consent from adolescent women for matters related to sexuality and reproduction, especially where traditional conservatism makes obtaining consent from a parent or guardian difficult. He finds it equally troubling that researchers continue regularly to face individuals with manageable diseases, yet they are not well equipped to properly combine their research mandate with a care mandate.
