The Research ethics secretariat is here!

Updated: Dec 1, 2021


The Virtual research ethics secretariat is one of the key activities of the BCA-WA-ETHICS II project. But, what is the Research ethics secretariat? And what can it offer your institution?


It is a virtual helpdesk at the service of all West African National research ethics committees (NRECs) free of charge! The aim of the secretariat is to strengthen the process of ethical research review in West Africa and to harmonize protocol evaluation tools. The secretariat works directly with members of NRECs, assesses their needs and accordingly provides technical support to improve their capacities in governance, research ethics, gender mainstreaming, and systematic research protocol evaluation.
