Global Health and Bioethics International Conference
The Oxford Global Health and Bioethics International Conference takes place every two years and addresses critically important ethical issues in the conception and implementation of Global Health. It aims to foster comprehensive multi-disciplinary debate moving beyond the parameters of disease, interventions and locations to attend to and engage with the many over-arching ethical concerns which characterise Global Health policy, practice and research.
The ethical issues involved in the practice of Global Health initiatives and research are increasingly the subject of public and scholarly debate. These discussions have, however, tended to be dominated by a focus on particular diseases or interventions in certain locations and often with specific views of what constitutes ethics. Debate has also tended to be limited by insufficient engagement between different disciplinary approaches to this subject.
Dates for our next conference
