Ethics in Emerging Forms of Global Health Research Collaboration

The Future of Bioethics

Michael Parker

Oxford University Press

Increasingly research on diseases affecting people in developing countries takes the form of collaborative networks. This chapter argues that these new forms of research mean that: Ethical issues arise differently across multiple, diverse but interconnected locations; Ethical issues arise and need to be resolved at multiple levels of analysis – particularly at both the global and local levels; ethical issues arise out of the fact that collaborative research involves communities in many different and disparate locations; ethical issues arise in relation to the nature and form of research collaboration; there is a need to develop practical ethical solutions in the context of multiple, ambiguous and sometimes competing forms of governance and regulation; change is a more common feature of the ethical landscape than in other forms of research; there is a need for priority-setting in ethics; and, Issues of global justice and fairness are more likely to be foregrounded.

Keywords:   ethics, research, global health, collaboration, developing countries, networks
