ETHICAL REVIEW ISSUES IN COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH BETWEEN US AND LOW – MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRY PARTNERS: A CASE EXAMPLE
The current ethical structure for collaborative international health research stems largely from developed countries’ standards of proper ethical practices. The result is that ethical committees in developing countries are required to adhere to standards that might impose practices that conflict with local culture and unintended interpretations of ethics, treatments, and research. This paper presents a case example of a joint international research project that successfully established inclusive ethical review processes as well as other groundwork and components necessary for the conduct of human behavior research and research capacity building in the host country.
