Targeted versus whole population approaches to the deployment of Point of Care Testing for STIs: scientific, social and ethical implications

Edelman, N. (Chair)

Activity: EventsWorkshop

Description

Funding is currently being sought to conduct this interdisciplinary and international workshop at the Brocher Fondation in Geneva. The workshop will bring together experts from across Western and Low and Middle Income countries to explore the conditions under which targeted versus whole population deployment of POCTs for STIs are warranted, and the social and ethical implications that each approach raises. The aim of the workshop is to identify and publish a series of research questions which must be answered in order to ensure ethically and scientifically robust guidance of this technology, particularly in the light of growing Anti-Microbial Resistance.
