The Coalition for Operational Research on Neglected Tropical Diseases works collaboratively with more than 300 partners, including 58 ministries of health, to facilitate operational research that addresses neglected tropical diseases.
Foundational to the COR-NTD mission is the development of strong partnerships between the NTD Support Center, in its role as secretariat of COR-NTD, and its collaborators. We emphasize the importance of sincerity and transparency among all involved partners and encourage open and honest communication, allowing for the exchange of ideas, questions, and ethical deliberation. We will collaborate in good faith, with a proactive exchange of information and insights, to ensure that ethical principles are upheld throughout the duration of our projects and throughout our engagement with all partners.
The Task Force for Global Health is devoted to upholding the highest ethical standards in all aspects of our work, and we firmly believe that the welfare, rights, and dignity of all individuals involved in our programs, research or otherwise, should be safeguarded. As such, we are committed to (1) following national and international best practices in the conduct of research and other programs, (2) complying with all relevant laws, regulations and guidelines pertaining to the protection of participants, and (3) remaining current with evolving ethical considerations.
