Second Training of the National Bioethics Commitee of Paraguay

Between August 19 and 23, the Second Training of the National Bioethics Commission of Paraguay was organized in the city of Asunción, organized by the UNESCO Regional Bioethics Program (Montevideo Office), with support from the Scientific Society of Paraguay .

The training was framed within the ABC (Assistance to National Bioethics Committees) project, which UNESCO is carrying out with the objective of strengthening and providing collaboration towards the national bioethics committees of the region. For 5 intensive days the members of the commission participated in classes, workshops and case discussions with three international experts. The thematic units were designed based on the principles of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights. Concrete cases were also presented based on the country's own experience.

The training was framed in the Memorandum of Understanding signed between UNESCO and the Ministry of Health of Paraguay. The participants assessed the experience as highly positive. This adds to the activities also developed within the Regional Network of National Committees and Commissions of bioethics that UNESCO supports
