Dr. Mokhachane is a pediatrician and consultant for the Neonatal Unit at the Chris Hani Barahwanath Hospital, University of Witwatersrand in South Africa. She earned her Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery (MB.B.Ch), Fellow of the College of Medicine (FCP.Paed.SA), and MMed of Pediatrics at the University of Witwatersrand. Dr. Mokhachane’s interest in bioethics was sparked by the unfortunate situations that she has witnessed in her country, including various atrocities regarding human rights and ethical issues. The recognition of these issues motivated her to become a member of the National Medical Research Council Ethics Committee and the Ethics Committee of Research on Human Subjects at the University of the Witwatersrand. Her particular area of interest in research ethics is human rights and the idea of equality in a diverse community. She is interested in pursuing a study about informed consent in cross-cultural settings. Dr. Mokhachane is also interested in conducting research about orphans in a community where children are not legally adopted by the extended family.
