In the presence of His Excellency, the Minister of Health of Guinea-Bissau, Dr. Dionisio Cumba, BCA-WA-ETHICS II launched the first ever website and digital platform for the Guinea Bissau National Health Research Ethics Committee (CNEPS). The launch event was attended by stakeholders from BCA-WA-ETHICS II, BERC-LUSO, CNEPS, as well as His Excellency Dr. Dionisio Cumba.
This website is expected to raise awareness about research ethics at a national level and would allow researchers to learn more about the procedures of protocol submission. The protocol evaluation tools, integrating sex and gender considerations, have been made publicly available on the website for greater guidance to the researchers. The aforementioned tools have been created in collaboration with BCA-WA-ETHICS II and the Regional Research Ethics Committee of Aragon in Spain.
