Conferences – Posters and Presentations, and Publications

Since Sandra Kendall’s first visit to Addis Ababa in 2008, the Library Science Program has developed and grown in response to the expressed needs of the library and clinical staff at the Black Lion Hospital, the Addis Ababa University and other university staff in Ethiopia.  As the program has become better known outside of Ethiopia, Sandra and the TAAAC Library team have been invited to present at conferences and to write and speak about the experience of developing a collaborative training program.

Publishing Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct for health research in low-income countries. As proposed at the Global Maternal Health Conference in Arusha Tanzania.

1.” No ethics committee, funder of research, or medical journal should approve, support, or publish research about a low-income country without joint authorship from that country.
2. In any research project in a low-income setting, local scientists must be included as co-principal investigators.
3. Before starting research in a low-income country, western authors and institutions must define a clear plan for how they will transfer research skills back to that country.
4. Medical journals and their publishers must ensure that all global health research is free at the point of use in countries.
5. Western journals must facilitate language translation of research, either themselves or by enabling local journals to republish freely.”

TAAAC-LSP conforms to the code of conduct as outlined above.
