SUBJECT: MOZAMBIQUE: POST ASSESSMENT OF PROPOSED RESEARCH PROJECT
NO. HD055841 02 INVOLVING A FOREIGN INSTITUTION

Ref: Secstate 19724

1. Post concurs that the research question in reftel is both
important and relevant, and the proposed institution, HAI
(University of Washington) is a well-established organization in
Mozambique capable of carrying out this research project. However,
post would urge that the investigators proposed in the project work
with Mozambican researchers, either in the Ministry of Health or
Mozambican National Institute of Health, as well as ensure that this
project is evaluated and approved by the Mozambican government
ethics committee, and not just by the University of Washington
ethics committee.
