    “Indigenizing” Bioethics: The First Center for Bioethics in Pakistan.Aamir M. Jafarey & Farhat Moazam - 2010 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 19 (3):353-362.
    Contemporary bioethics has evolved over the past 40 years predominantly as a “Western” construct drawing fundamental inspiration for its conceptual and methodological frameworks from secular, Anglo-American philosophical traditions. American bioethicists can be credited with playing a defining role in the globalization of this new discipline to the developing countries of the world, but in this process, in the words of LaFleur, “Bioethics has become international without becoming internationalized.” Among the criticisms leveled against the dominant American model of bioethics is that (...)

    To Donate a Kidney: Public Perspectives From Pakistan.Farhat Moazam, Aamir M. Jafarey & Bushra Shirazi - 2013 - Bioethics 27 (3):76-83.

Pakistan, a country with 165 million Muslims, currently reliant on live donors, is considering steps to establish deceased donor programs which will require public acceptance and support. This article analyzes the results of in-depth interviews with 105 members of the public focusing on opinions and knowledge about juristic rulings regarding kidney donations, donor-family dynamics (...)

    Health research for progress in the control and conquest of disease afflicting man is unquestionable. Concerns arise when motives other than the advancement of scientific knowledge and benefit for individuals and society are the driving force behind clinical trials.

South Asia with its teeming millions represents one such region. This essay examines the reasons that make this population vulnerable to exploitation. (...)
