Kudos to the FABsters!

In response to an invitation from the World Medical Association, a Committee of the International Network on Feminist Approaches to Bioethics, worked over the summer to develop a document aimed at revising the Declaration of Helsinki.

The committee
currently is working with FAB Board members to develop a second submission, due in February. In order to keep everyone informed about their work and its impact thus far (notable, I think!), they have posted key documents on the FAB website: the standing version of the Declaration of Helsinki, the first submission to the WMA (forthcoming in the first issue of IJFAB), and finally, a draft of the revised Declaration. This is a great opportunity for this organization and we are sure they will make an important contribution. A Hearty Congratulations!
