International ethical statements
Khulisa is committed to conducting evaluations and research that upholds and adheres to ethical practice. There are a number of international research ethical statements. For example, our IRB approval for a current project adheres to the Singapore Statement on Research Ethics.
Training on ethics
Khulisa also provides regular training and briefings to staff, and ensures that all field workers are familiar with conducting ethical practices. We encourage everyone to be trained on the protection of human research participants. We recently undertook a staff quiz on the practice of ethics in our work.
Here is a quick link to free online training on the protection of human research participants.
