Strengthening the regulatory framework to upgrade ethical review of clinical research and drugs safety monitoring in Cameroon - BREEDSAFCA

In Cameroon, health research ethics has made remarkable progress since 2009 till date. This thanks to the political will and with the support of development partners. In 12 years Cameroon has been able to put in place an ethics evaluation system: two out of eight regions have functional regional ethics committees; some basic national regulation have been developed and made available.  However, the regulatory aspects on the administrative and ethical evaluation of health research projects still require adjustments as well as the modalities for the functioning of ethics committees and other bodies regulating health research ethics.
