From 12-14 February 2020, the Africa Regional Meeting, in preparation for the 13th Global Summit of National Ethics/Bioethics Committees will take place in Mombasa, Kenya. The meeting, hosted by the National Commission for Science Technology and Innovation (NACOSTI), and supported by the Kenya National Commission for UNESCO (KNATCOM), will be organized jointly in partnership with UNESCO and World Health Organization (WHO), two of the UN agencies institutionally affiliated with the Global Summit process.
It is designed to consolidate and harmonize an Africa-wide position, in the run up to the 13th Global Summit, scheduled to take place in Lisbon Portugal, in 2020.
To be sure, the Global Summit on Bioethics, now approaching its 13th edition, brings together representatives of National Ethics/Bioethics Committee, and other experts in the field (Bioethicists, Philosophers, etc.), every two years, to reflect on the state of the field, and developments therein.
