    A scoping review of genetics and genomics research ethics policies and guidelines for Africa.Joseph Ochieng, Nelson K. Sewankambo, John Barugahare, Betty Kwagala, Juli M. Bollinger, Erisa Mwaka, Betty Cohn & Joseph Ali - 2021 - BMC Medical Ethics 22 (1):1-15.
    BackgroundGenetics and genomics research (GGR) is increasingly being conducted around the world; yet, researchers and research oversight entities in many countries have struggled with ethical challenges. A range of ethics and regulatory issues need to be addressed through comprehensive policy frameworks that integrate with local environments. While important efforts have been made to enhance understanding and awareness of ethical dimensions of GGR in Africa, including through the H3Africa initiative, there remains a need for in-depth policy review, at a country-level, to (...)

    Perspectives and ethical considerations for return of genetics and genomics research results: a qualitative study of genomics researchers in Uganda.Nelson K. Sewankambo, Joseph Ali, Deborah Ekusai-Sebatta, Erisa Mwaka, John Barugahare, Betty Kwagala & Joseph Ochieng - 2021 - BMC Medical Ethics 22 (1):1-9.
    BackgroundThe return of genetics and genomics research results has been a subject of ongoing global debate. Such feedback is ethically desirable to update participants on research findings particularly those deemed clinically significant. Although there is limited literature, debate continues in African on what constitutes appropriate practice regarding the return of results for genetics and genomics research. This study explored perspectives and ethical considerations of Ugandan genomics researchers regarding the return of genetics and genomics research results.MethodsThis was a qualitative study that (...)

    Evolution of research ethics in a low resource setting: A case for Uganda.Joseph Ochieng, Erisa Mwaka, Betty Kwagala & Nelson Sewankambo - 2018 - Developing World Bioethics 20 (1):50-60.
    Background The globalization of clinical research in the last two decades has led to a significant increase in the volume of clinical research in developing countries. As of 2016, Uganda was the third largest destination for clinical trials in Africa. This requires adequate capacity and systems to facilitate ethical practice. Methods This was a retrospective study involving review of laws, guidelines, policies and records from 1896 to date. Results Modern medicine evolved from 1896 and by the time of Uganda's independence (...)

    Ethical tensions in the informed consent process for randomized clinical trials in emergency obstetric and newborn care in low and middle-income countries.Dan K. Kaye, Gershom Chongwe & Nelson K. Sewankambo - 2019 - BMC Medical Ethics 20 (1):27.
    There is unanimous agreement regarding the need to ethically conduct research for improving therapy for patients admitted to hospital with acute conditions, including in emergency obstetric care. We present a conceptual analysis of ethical tensions inherent in the informed consent process for randomized clinical trials for emergency obstetric care and suggest ways in which these could be mitigated. A valid consenting process, leading to an informed consent, is a cornerstone of this aspect necessary for preservation and maintenance of respect for (...)

    Improving institutional research ethics capacity assessments: lessons from sub-Saharan Africa.Molly Deutsch-Feldman, Joseph Ali, Nancy Kass, Nthabiseng Phaladze, Charles Michelo, Nelson Sewankambo & Adnan A. Hyder - 2018 - Global Bioethics:1-13.
    The amount of biomedical research being conducted around the world has greatly expanded over the past 15 years, with particularly large growth occurring in low- and middle-income countries. This increased focus on understanding and responding to disease burdens around the world has brought forth a desire to help LMIC institutions enhance their own capacity to conduct scientifically and ethically sound research. In support of these goals the Johns Hopkins-Fogarty African Bioethics Training Program has, for the past six years, partnered with (...)

    ABSTRACT The amount of biomedical research being conducted around the world has greatly expanded over the past 15 years, with particularly large growth occurring in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This increased focus on understanding and responding to disease burdens around the world has brought forth a desire to help LMIC institutions enhance their own capacity to conduct scientifically and ethically sound research. In support of these goals the Johns Hopkins-Fogarty African Bioethics Training Program (FABTP) has, for the past six (...)

    Collection and use of human materials during TB clinical research; a review of practices.Nelson Sewankambo, Betty Kwagala & Joseph Ochieng - 2022 - BMC Medical Ethics 23 (1):1-6.
    BackgroundHuman biological materials are usually stored for possible future use in research because they preserve valuable biological information, save time and resources, which would have been spent on collection of fresh samples. However, use of these materials may pose ethical challenges such as unauthorized disclosure of genetic information, which can result in dire consequences for individuals or communities including discrimination, stigma, and psychological harm; has biosecurity implications; and loss of control or ownership of samples or data. To understand these problems (...)

    Assessing the quality of informed consent in a resource-limited setting: A cross-sectional study. [REVIEW]Ronald Kiguba, Paul Kutyabami, Stephen Kiwuwa, Elly Katabira & Nelson Sewankambo - 2012 - BMC Medical Ethics 13 (1):21-.
    Background: The process of obtaining informed consent continues to be a contentious issue in clinical and public health research carried out in resource-limited settings. We sought to evaluate this process among human research participants in randomly selected active research studies approved by the School of Medicine Research and Ethics Committee at the College of Health Sciences, Makerere University. Methods: Data were collected using semi-structured interviewer-administered questionnaires on clinic days after initial or repeat informed consent procedures for the respective clinical studies (...)
