BCA-WA-ETHICSII: Ethics policy brief

The Ministry of Health and Social Action of Senegal published the ‘Note de politique: la gestion de la vulnérabilité dans la revue éthique des protocoles de recherche sur la Covid-19’. The policy brief discusses the management of vulnerability in COVID-19 research and provides recommendations for future ethical research conduct. It mainly targets evaluators in national research ethics committees, institutional review boards, as well as researchers developing a mental health research protocol. The guidelines were developed from an African perspective, and could also be applied to other low-resource settings. The policy brief is a product of the BCA-WA-ETHICS II project.
