Johns Hopkins African bioethics program receives 5-year continuation grant from NIH
Date:6/21/2012

The Fogarty African Bioethics Training Program (FABTP) at the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics is planning its second decade of building capacity in research ethics across sub-Saharan Africa, thanks to a five-year grant from the Fogarty International Center of the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

The five years of additional funding will allow more African institutions to partner with the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics (BI) to deepen their programs in bioethics and research ethics. In the FABTP, an African institution is selected each year to send scholars to BI, where they spend six months engaged in course work, seminars, intensive mentoring, and leadership training. The Fogarty funding then provides support for these individuals to complete a six-month practicum project in research ethics at their home African institution.

"We were first funded by Fogarty to start this program 12 years ago, when there were few opportunities for training in research ethics within Africa. We are honored and humbled to be awarded an additional five years of funding by the NIH," says Nancy Kass, ScD, co-director of FABTP and Deputy Director for Public Health at BI. "Many of our FABTP alumni have become recognized international ethics experts and we look forward to this continued funding that will allow more African institutions to develop sustainable bioethics and research ethics centers," Kass says.

Oliver Mweemba, a 2012 Fogarty Scholar from the University of Zambia, School of Medicine, wants to enhance research ethics education at his home institution. His practicum project will develop and implement a curriculum for researchers, educators, and staff. Mweemba teaches health promotion, social medicine and qualitative methods to undergraduate and graduate students. He has also been involved in HIV prevention research projects at both the national and international level, and consulted on the Population Council's s
