Offering financial incentives is a common practice in health research to recruit participants, retain them, and promote health-related behaviours. Nevertheless, the use of these incentives remains controversial in some cases.
We invite you to join us in April for a free webinar where international experts will present their views on financial incentives in health research and health interventions, discuss the ethical questions around the topic with a focus on breastfeeding research, and answer questions from the audience.
The webinar is part of the Forum for Global Health Ethics Webinar Series and completes the LactaWebinar on EFBRI – an Evolving Ethical Framework Informing Breastfeeding Research and Interventions.
This online event is organised by the Institute of Biomedical Ethics and History of Medicine (University of Zurich), The Swiss Medical Weekly, The Global Health Network (University of Oxford) and LactaHub.
Chairs: Nikola Biller-Andorno and Tania Manríquez Roa, Institute of Biomedical Ethics and History of Medicine, University of Zurich, Switzerland, a WHO Collaborating Centre for Bioethics
