Health Ethics in Francophone Africa under review in Yaoundé Cameroon

4 September, 2021

Dear HIFA Colleagues,

The growing need to enable quality health research to be made in all sorts of contexts (e.g., health emergencies etc) requires strong ethical knowledge and background.

It is was timely the organization of a health ethics review work session for West and Central francophone National Health Ethics committees.

In Cameroon we encourage and inform on the use of such evidence generated to improve on health system performance and health research.

Please for more information about the health ethics working session click on the link below.
