The need for enhanced capacity in international research ethics and global bioethics is important, especially in low- and middle-income countries where there are huge leaps in health systems research but not as much parallel work on ethical implications. The Johns Hopkins-Fogarty African Bioethics Training Program (FABTP) aims to improve bioethics capacity development for institutions within Africa.

FABTP is an in-depth bioethics training program that is funded by the National Institutes of Health Fogarty International Center and directed by Drs. Adnan Hyder and Nancy Kass. The program includes bioethics training at Johns Hopkins University, independent research in the recipient’s home country, and a scholarly exchange at a different FABC member institution in Africa.

Gershom Chongwe from the University of Zambia and Dan Kaye from Makerere University were the 2018 FABTP recipients. During their stay in Baltimore from January-May they took courses in the Department of International Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) and the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics. In May they went home to collect data and will return in August to continue their courses and analyze the data.
