"What is the role of bioethics in a changing world?"

Health Systems Global

Interestingly, International Association of Bioethics president, Anant Bhan (Yenepoya University, India), and Dr Caesar Atuire (University of Ghana, Ghana) both used their plenary talks to discuss the role of bioethics. Anant said bioethics’ role is to focus on inequities and to be more politically engaged. This means performing ethics research on topics like migration, climate change, the rise of isolationism and xenophobia, resistance to evidence-based medicine, and sexual harassment. He also highlighted “new frontiers in science” that raise ethical questions: data sharing, the changing nature of biomedical research (e.g. Challenge studies), and public and community engagement.
