Ethics Committees 2011

Basic Information

Network EDCTP
Aim of the joint call The purpose of this grant is to: 1. Promote the establishment and strengthening of National Ethics Committees (NECs) and Institutional Review Boards (IRBs)that are competent and independent in sub-Saharan countries. The NECs and the IRBs are encouraged to establish themselves administratively and financially to ensure sustained optimal function beyond the EDCTP funding. Strengthening of NECs or IRBs aims at making them operational and gives support to their ongoing functions. Networking and training is encouraged and supported. Additional support in the form of online literature access, documentation, access to websites on ethics and GCP may be facilitated 2. Encourage IRBs in countries where NECs do not exist, to contribute to the formation of a NEC. Where neither NECs nor local IRBs exist, EDCTP will encourage nationally recognised institutions or scientists affiliated to an established in-country institution to be contacted, in order to initiate the formation of the NEC
