Ethical & Legal Framework

The B3Africa Ethical and Legal Framework is shaping up:

  • Early analysis of the B3Africa ethical and legal landscape (Ethical and Legal Framework);
  • 2 basic notions considered as universally accepted: informed consent & ethical approval;
  • B3Africa ELSI Workshop in The Gambia (April 2016);
  • Draft Model Data Management Policy (MDMP), based on MIABIS 2.0;
  • MDMP currently being embedded to the informatics platform (the eB3Kit);
  • 2 webinars (ELSI & MIABIS);
  • Independent Ethical Board;
  • Close collaboration with other projects and networks, such as H3Africa and BCNet
