To all Ethiopian Public Health Association (EPHA) members and partners

The EPHA Institutional Review Board (IRB) for research ethics approval has been granted a level-A license by the national research ethics review committee to evaluate research protocols/proposals and provide ethical approvals. Currently, the IRB has been reorganized and strengthened to serve the purpose by adopting detailed standard operating procedures based on national and international standards. Hence, this is to inform you all that the IRB has started issuing ethical approvals to different researchers and institutions as of October 2019. If the protocol/proposal submission is of the desired quality for ethical standards, the approval process would not take more than 30 calendar days.

Please be kindly advised to use templates for protocols/proposal submission and in addition to this, applicants should note that there are fees to facilitate ethical approval.
