FLACEIS Argentina.

FLACEIS (Latin American Network of Research Ethics Committees) was created in 2000 in Mexico by TDR (Tropical Disease Research) a department of WHO (World Health Organization). The Argentine Chapter of FLACEIS or FLACEIS Argentina is one of the oldest and active chapters of the region. It was created in 2001 and it is coordinated by the Program of Bioethics of FLACSO Argentina. We have a clear and firm position, regarding the importance of the common good, the respect of human rights, the development of science in our country, and the protection of the people involved as research subjects.

Among other activities held, FLACEIS Argentina has been organizing four meetings annually, open to all research ethics committee (REC) members of the region, researchers and people interested in research ethics. As it functions with the dynamic of a network, not only we welcome any person interested in the topic but also we select the theme of our meetings horizontally inquiring which are the issues we want to discuss or share with other committee members. Depending on the subject we have two or three speakers (mostly members of FLACEIS Argentina, but we can also invite specific persons from abroad) and after their presentations, we leave the floor open to questions or comments. Our meetings are a pluralistic and interdisciplinary place where we exchange experiences, discuss issues related to research, establish common criteria for protocol analysis, guidelines or standards and where we promote training in the field of applied ethics to scientific and technology development.
