In the presence of His Excellency the Minister of Health of Guinea-Bissau Dr Dionisio Cumba, BCA-WA-ETHICS II launched the first ever website and digital platform for the Guinea-Bissau National Health Research Ethics Committee (CNEPS). The launch event was attended by stakeholders from BCA-WA-ETHICS II, BERC-Luso, and the National Committee for Ethics in Health Research of Cape Verde (CNEPS). The website is expected to raise awareness about research ethics at a national level and allows researchers to learn more about the procedures of protocol submission.

These tools have been created in collaboration with BCA-WA-ETHICS II and the Regional Research Ethics Committee of Aragon in Spain.
