SIDCER was established to address the fundamental ethical gaps and challenges encountered in health research globally. As an international partnership, SIDCER focuses its activities on developing global capacity in ethical review and Good Research Practices. It has developed out of the capacity-building activities of WHO/TDR in cooperation with the national and international research organizations. For the first few years of its existence, SIDCER will be a WHO/TDR collaborative initiative, and will become independent when it can sustain itself. The primary objective of SIDCER is to contribute to human subject protections globally by developing capacity in ethical review and the ethics of health research.
