Mexico City. Host of the 10th Global Summitt of National Ethics/Bioethics Committees

From June 22-24, 2014, Mexico City will have the honor of receiving official representatives from various nations as the host of the 10th Global Summit of National Ethics/Bioethics Committees. This achievement was based on the tireless labor of the Mexican National Bioethics Commission and the Permanent Secretariat of the World Health Organization, through its Department of Knowledge, Ethics and Research.

The Global Summit is a forum for those attending to exchange opinions, information and experiences, while producing agreements and consensus on leading issues in ethics and bioethics in health that demand analysis at the local, regional and global levels.

Thanks to the participants, the issues analyzed and the results obtained, the Global Summit of National Ethics/Bioethics Committees is considered by participating governments to be the most important meeting worldwide in terms of its impact on ethics/bioethics and health.
