National Bioethics Conference

11-13 Dec 2014, South Bangalore


“Since 2005 the National Bioethics Conference (NBC) has been conducted under the aegis of the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics (IJME), in partnership with several institutions, focusing on various contemporary ethical issues. This is the fifth NBC. The priority themes of this year’s conference are dual issues of integrity and corruption in healthcare and research. When corruption creeps into healthcare and medical research, health professionals should be able to uphold integrity in professional practice and also be held socially accountable. The conference aims to explore various sides of corruption and examines the limits and dimensions of integrity for health professionals and the health system. In addition to the keynote addresses, there will be paper and poster presentations and workshops which will be selected by a scientific committee. There will also be screening of films centred around the conference theme. “The Dolls Speak” is a special exhibition at the conference which is guaranteed to enlighten and enthral all.

The meeting aims to expose the participants to varied aspects of bioethics, while concentrating on the pivotal themes. We expect delegates from medical, community and public health, legal, consumer movement and public affairs fraternities including students from these disciplines. We hope that the bio-ethics discipline and movement grows and gains strength from this NBC.”
