This casebook collects 64 case studies each of which raises an important and difficult ethical issue connected with planning, reviewing or conducting health-related research. The book's purpose is to contribute to thoughtful analysis of these issues by researchers and members of research ethics committees (REC s known in some places as ethical review committees or institutional review boards) particularly those involved with studies that are conducted or sponsored internationally. This collection is envisioned principally as a tool to aid educational programs from short workshops on research ethics to in-service learning for scientists and REC members to formal degree or certificate courses. In such settings instructors will typically select a number of case studies that will be distributed to the participants to provoke and focus discussion. To assist those using these case studies in their classrooms and workshops a teaching guide has been included. Individuals who want to stimulate their own thinking about research ethics or to become more familiar with a range of real-world dilemmas in international health research especially in developing countries may also benefit from perusing this book either on topics of special interest to them or as a whole."
