Future vision

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.

Data Sharing

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
