Abstract

DE VRIES, J  and  MUNUNG, N S. Ethical considerations in genomic research in South Africa. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2019, vol.109, n.6, pp.375-377. ISSN 2078-5135.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/samj.2019.vl09i6.14067.

The conduct of genomic research in South Africa (SA) raises a number of ethical challenges that need to be addressed in its design and execution. These include, for example, considerations of consent, community engagement, stigmatisation, feedback of findings and ensuring that genomic research is of benefit to patients and researchers in SA. We provide an overview of the current debates on some of these issues and pointers for further reading.
