TRREE-online module

TRREE-online module on public health research ethics, which SSPH+ has supported, is now available in English and French. This module targets all those involved in the planning, conduct and evaluation of research in public health. Public health research raises specific ethical questions. For researchers in this field, the standard ethical and legal framework does not seem to be well adapted to their requirements.
TRREE stands for Training and Resources in Research Ethics Evaluation. It aims at providing basic training, while building capacities, on the ethics of health research involving humans so that research meets highest standards of ethics and promotes the health and welfare of participants and local populations. The self elearning modules are available on a free, open-access and multilingual basis (English, German, French, Portuguese… and Chinese).
