Dr Niall Winters and Dr Anne Geniets from the Department of Education (Oxford Network on Health Care Training, Social Justice and Technology and LNTRG) and Dr Sridhar Venkatapuram (King’s College London) have been awarded a Wellcome Trust small grant to host the first KCL-Oxford Symposium on ‘Ethics of Innovative Technologies for Improving Health in Low-Income Countries’ at the University of Oxford.

The Symposium, which will be held at the Oxford Martin School on 24th November 2016, will bring together academics and practitioners to scope out the variety of novel ethical issues being raised at the intersection of ‘innovative technologies’, ‘pro-poor’ development and health interventions in resource poor settings, considering both practical as well as theoretical issues.
