Editors: Takafira Mduluza, Sylvester Chima and Stephen E.N. Nsimba
Book Description:
This new book reveals the necessary steps required by researchers from both developing and industrialized areas to conduct biomedical research in resource poor communities. This book goes beyond the ethical consideration and concentrates on issues considered minor by many researchers during planning of their research conduct. The communities considered are diverse both culturally and geographically. The communities are exposed by the authors with several years’ experience working in the area on hierarchy, beliefs and fears, the economical and social aspects. Probably the education levels and how this is developing, impacting on research have been discussed. The boundaries and religions that make each community as an important aspect demarcating Africa into the social structures. Planning and preparing to undertake biomedical research in resource poor communities of Africa goes even deeper than the normal ethical considerations.
