The Africa Ethics Working Group (AEWG) is an international and interdisciplinary network of people interested in the ethics of mental health research, including experts in neuro-ethics, psychiatry, psychology, mental health, bioethics, philosophy, social science and public health. It is a consultative entity within NeuroGenE, providing advice on ethical challenges of multi-site genetic studies in African countries through our partnership with the Stanley Global Collections Initiative. The AEWG builds capacity in both research and training within the ethics of neuropsychiatric genetics and genomics by publishing articles, ethical guidelines and delivering training.
