A follow-up workshop was held in February 2004 to explore developments in the area of research related to healthcare in developing countries.
The workshop was co-hosted by the Council and the South African MRC and was organised by an international Steering Committee.
The focus of the day was to debate the ethical and regulatory issues raised by new and recently revised guidelines, and the obstacles to their effective implementation.
The day was attended by 58 delegates from 28 countries. The mix of delegates, with diverse backgrounds and a wide range of experiences, facilitated very valuable discussion.
The Council and South African MRC would like to thank the following for their generous support of the workshop:
- Wellcome Trust
- The Rockefeller Foundation
