This project aims to fill the critical gaps in ethics guidance for responsible research with women, children and families in low-income countries. The project is a collaboration between researchers in the UK, Kenya, South Africa and Thailand. It is an interdisciplinary study, involving investigators in bioethics, maternal-child health, infectious disease and social science research. The project aims to advance understanding of: specific vulnerabilities in context; the role of social support in mitigating vulnerability; individuals’ own perceptions of vulnerabilities and abilities.
