GFBR 2016 presentations now available

The GFBR convened in Buenos Aires, Argentina in November 2016, to explore the “ethics of research in pregnancy”. With experts in bioethics, obstetrics and gynecology, epidemiology, public policy and clinical research from over 40 countries, the meeting used case study presentations and first hand experiences as the basis for discussion, covering both communicable and non-communicable disease and research in public health emergencies, such as the recent Zika epidemic. With a focus on research in low and middle income countries the meeting explored the reasons why pregnant women have been systematically excluded from research and how the ethical and legal issues can be navigated to promote and facilitate appropriate inclusion.

Presentations from the meeting are available here.
