September 9: Public Health Ethics Lecture with Elizabeth Heitman
Title: International Capacity Building in Research Ethics: Responding to the Charge of Moral Imperialism
Time: 11:30am
Location: Center for Ethics Commons 102
Synopsis:
The growth of research in lower- and middle-income countries sponsored by governmental and private funders in upper-income countries has led to standards that call for ethical review of research protocols by in both the sponsor’s and the host’s institution or country.  A central tenet of contemporary ethical guidelines for international research is that sponsors from upper-income countries have an obligation to help developing countries build an infrastructure for ethical review of externally-sponsored research.  The NIH’s Fogarty International Center sponsors the world’s largest program in research ethics education and curriculum development for lower- and middle-income countries.  Fogarty has recently been charged with “moral imperialism” by ethicists in Latin America, who view human subjects research as an issue of human rights.  This presentation will explore contemporary ethical standards for international research  in biomedicine and public health, and consider the practical, ethical, and political challenges that face efforts at capacity building in developing countries.”
