Seminar on Collaborative Health Research Fairness Index

The Council on Health Research for Development (COHRED) will host a seminar for further work on its proposed fairness index for international collaborative health research. The purpose of the COHRED Colloquium 4 is to establish a common global benchmark to allow data sharing and ownership, capacity building, technology transfer, and benefits of collaborative research for partner and associated institutions. Health research policy-makers will discuss what such an index should look like and how it could be utilised for maximum benefit for health actors across the globe, while improving health in less developed countries. For further information on the colloquium, send an email to Najia Musolino at musolino[at]cohred.org. [Image credit: COHRED]
