Abstract1. The 20th session of the WHO African Advisory Committee for Health Research andDevelopment (AACHRD), held in Dakar, Senegal, from 23 to 26 April 2001, noted with concern that,despite the significant increase in the amount of clinical research carried out in the Region in the pastdecade, especially in the field of HIV/AIDS, the bioethical aspects of these research endeavours havenot received due attention by Member States. The Committee recommended that research bioethicsbe treated as an area for priority intervention in the Region. It is against this background that theRegional Director is bringing issues associated with research bioethics before the RegionalCommittee so that it can address the challenges faced by the Region.2. This document presents key concerns and challenges about health research bioethics in theAfrican Region and is meant to inform the Regional Committee of the gravity of the situation. It alsomakes suggestions for implementation by Member States and WHO. The Regional Committee is,therefore, requested to examine, improve and adopt the suggestions to address the challengespresented by bioethical issues involved in health research in the African Region.
