“TRREE stands for Training and Resources in Research Ethics Evaluation.
TRREE is headed by a consortium of interested persons from Northern and Southern countries. It aims to provide basic training, while building capacities, on the ethics of health research involving humans so that research meets highest standards of ethics and promotes the welfare of participants. TRREE achieves this goal primarily by developing a training programme with local collaborators. In its initial stages TRREE focused primarily, but not exclusively, on the needs of African countries.
TRREE provides free-of-charge access to:
- e-Learning: a distance learning program and certification on research ethics evaluation
- e-Resources: a participatory web-site with international, regional and national regulatory and policy resources
- TRREE’s learning material is currently available in English [EN], French [FR], German [DE] and Portuguese [PT].
The e-learning programme is based on internationally recognized ethical principles and regulations. It integrates local issues and perspectives from low-and middle-income countries, most notably from African countries, that are relevant to all those who must ensure the protection of research participants and who promote highest ethical standards.
The ongoing development of this programme promoted co-learning, collaboration and capacity-building amongst partners.”
