POSTGRADUATE COURSE IN BIOETHICS
Targets of West African Bioethics Training Program

Our masters’ degree program will lead to the creation of a cadre of bioethics experts who can provide training at institutional level, staff health research ethics committees, review research protocols, conduct research and help to shape ethics and biomedical research policy.

Among the expected impact of our training program is an increase in the contribution of researchers from developing countries to the global discourse on Bioethics. This is currently low and has not shown a significant upward trend in the past decade; though this is not peculiar to bioethics. Programs that give regional experts the opportunity of joint participation in supervision, research and mentoring of students are likely to lead to an increase in the contribution from West Africa to the bioethics literature. Global bioethics discourse will benefit from the contributions of developing countries bioethicists, particularly females, Muslims and animists.
