Dear members of the network’s blog and viewers,

It is the first conference of The Bioethics Network on Women’s Issues in the Arab Region.
International and regional speakers and researchers will participate in the conference to report the situation surrounding women’s in relation to health care and research in their countries, and to discuss how this network could tackle ethical questions raised. A panel discussion will debate mission, objectives, structure and function of the network. The participants of this conference will be experts and representatives of institutions (associations, NGOs, research centers, health care centers, hospitals, academic institutions, governmental bodies, UN agencies) working on related issues.
