4088.0 International Research Ethics

Tuesday, October 28, 2008: 10:30 AM
Public health research is global, but the ethical issues that we focus on in the U.S. are not necessarily the same ethical issues that come up in international public health research. This session will discuss two research studies exploring participants attitudes about informed consent and the unlinking of anonymous testing of blood. Another paper will explore the process of engaging the community as a way of identifying and addressing ethical issues of importance to the community in rural India. Finally, there will be a presentation on the ethical issues faced by researchers who are engaged in HIV prevention and treatment studies in developing countries.
Session Objectives: 1. describe ethical issues in international research 2. understand some of the ethical issues that must be balanced in international HIV prevention and treatment research 3. learn about how community consultation can address some of these ethical issues 4. learn about research participants' attitudes towards unlinked anonymous testing of blood
