Title Ethical Issues of Research in Developing Countries
Topics Description This is an overview of ethical issues that arise in conducting research in resource-poor countries. Our western concepts of informed consent and treating patients are viewed differently due to cultural differences. Some of the challenges researchers are faced with are low-literacy, societal customs, and communicating concepts in different languages, and stigmas associated with certain diseases.
