The Ethics of ‘Second-Best' Care: conducting research in Developing Countries"

Lecture by Ezekiel Emanuel, Chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania.

 

Research for medical treatments is often conducted in developing countries. Yet participants in these countries may not reap the benefits discovered through these studies. Is it ethical to provide "second-best" treatment to research participants who might not otherwise have access to treatment at all? Should we strive to provide equal access globally? This talk will address the various ethical issues, and proposed solutions, to conducting international clinical research trials.

 

The lecture will be followed by the panel discussion "Biomedical research in our society" with:

Mercè Boada, medical director of the ACE Foundation

Bonaventura Clotet, director of IrsiCaixa

Manel Esteller, Director of the Epigenetics and Biology of Cancer Programme, Institute of Biomedical Research, Bellvitge (IDIBELL)

Joan MV Pons, scientific coordinator of Health Quality and Evaluation Agency (Aquas)

Chairperson: Núria Terribas, director of the Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation
