Groups » Workshop on Community Consent for Gene Drive Research in Africa (Closed Group)

Target Malaria and the Kenya Medical Research Institute have convened this workshop to examine issues related to consent and community acceptance in the development of gene drive technologies in African contexts. It is intended to provide direction and recommendations to Target Malaria as it enters its next phase of work. The workshop will not discuss stakeholder engagement in general terms, or reduce engagement to acceptance, but will instead seek to tease out what is meant by consent and acceptance, what practices, requirements and standards could be drawn upon by Target Malaria to ensure decisions are informed and meaningful, and what is the responsibility and role of researchers in this process. PLEASE SEE THE "CONTEXT & INTRODUCTION" TOPIC FOR FURTHER DETAILS AND INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO PARTICIPATE.
