Explore bioethics’ in the Indian context


This webinar explored the concept of bioethics, which is value-laden, by using perspectives from social and cultural anthropology, practical ethics, science practice, and policy decisions. The speaker drew examples from the public health realm in India to discuss and observe that bioethics’ should not be limited to mere protocol compliance but should guide science practice.
