MERETI Annual Workshop Held in Marrakech, Morocco

The annual MERETI workshop in research ethics was held in Marrakech, Morocco during March 1-3, 2015.  In addition to Dr. Henry Silverman, faculty included Mohamed Salem, Suhail Al-Amad, Hillary Edwards, Latifa Adarmouch, and Salma Ait Batahar.  Participants came from Morocco, Egypt, Sudan, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia.   There was also a featured presentation on the draft Moroccan law by Professor Harif.  A unique feature of this impending law will be the establishment of regional research ethics committees in the 12 regions of the country.  There will also be a National Ethics Committee that will deal with general ethics issues and local hospital ethics committees that will manage medical ethics issues.
