First Bioethicists group of Pakistan held their first seminar

KARACHI: The first bioethicists group of Pakistan, named the Bioethics Assembly, held their initial seminar at the Aga Khan Hospital on Saturday.

The Bioethics Assembly, an academic group from the Aga Khan University (AKU), aims to spread education and information regarding bioethics in medical colleges, universities, hospitals and health care units.

The participants at the seminar underscored on the need for lectures and discussions on bioethics at different institutions and health care centres to create awareness.

The AKU Bioethics Unit Coordinator, Dr Arshi Farooqui, encouraged participants to write articles in medical journals to spread information.

Farooqi said that there is a deficiency of bioethics education in the country and the university will soon offer short courses to assist more people.
