Second Training of the National Bioethics Committee of Paraguay
UNESCO will carry out the Second Training of the National Bioethics Committee of Paraguay in Asunción, Paraguay, from 19 to 23 August 2019.
The aim is to strengthen the National Bioethics Committee of Paraguay in the field of bioethics through training and workshops.
The Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights advocates the establishment of independent, multidisciplinary and pluralist ethics committees at national, regional, local or institutional levels.
Bioethics Committees reinforce the role of UNESCO as an international clearing house for ethical issues. Ethics committees furthermore are one of the most important intermediary bodies for the implementation of the normative instruments adopted by UNESCO's Member States.
