In 2022, Inserm set up an international initiative on ethical issues related to the participation of healthy volunteers in biomedical research. Called VolREthics (Volunteers in Research and Ethics), this initiative is supported by numerous international partners including DNDi. Its objective is to lead to the sharing and discussion of practices at international level, so that each country can decide on the best way to protect its healthy volunteers.
Following a first meeting held in February 2022 and regional workshops, Inserm is hosting an international meeting to share recommendations that ensure respect for the rights, well-being, and safety of healthy volunteers in biomedical research.
