Bioethics & Engagement
Paying attention to the needs of the public and communities is essential to make our programmes ethical and trustworthy, and to maximise their success and impact.
Based in Bangkok, Bioethics & Engagement has field-based teams operating in Mae Sot and Chiangrai on the Thai-Myanmar border, in Udon Thani, Thailand, from LOMWRU in Vientiane, Lao PDR and, in Cambodia, at a TACT-CV study site in Siem Pang and at COMRU in Siem Reap.
Since 2015, the Bioethics & Engagement Department led and supported a number of initiatives
We provide support to MORU’s central objective, to improve the health of people living in the resource-poor tropics. We do this by engaging our stakeholders and conducting ethics research to ensure that our research is ethical and trustworthy, and that its impact is maximized.
The MORU Tropical Health Network recognizes the value of sharing individual level data. We aim to ensure that data generated from all our research are collected, curated, managed and shared in a way that maximizes their benefit. When sharing data we have an obligation to ensure that the interests of research participants, researchers and other stakeholders are appropriately protected
