As part of its ongoing commitment to studying ethical issues in international health and research, the IU Center for Bioethics, in partnership with the IUPUI Medical Humanities and Health Studies Program; the IU Hall Center for Law and Health; the IUPUI Office of International Affairs; and the IU Center for Global Health convened an 8-part seminar series  on Global Bioethics, the goals of which were to:

  • Provide a venue for in-depth discussion of emerging (and persistent) ethical issues in global health;
  • Identify gaps in knowledge and practice that present research and collaboration opportunities;
  • Develop and expand local capacity.

All seminars are accessible via URL on this site.
