Financing health services for refugee populations: how to pay the bill? | Investing in Health
Irina Nikolic, Senior Health Specialist, World Bank, highlighted
opportunities for innovative technologies to facilitate effective service
delivery for refugees in weaker health systems and humanitarian crises.
Using mobile-based tools, Dimagi <> provides
community health workers with support for diagnosis and management in rural
and remote areas. Drones for Humanity <> also
enable humanitarian agencies to deliver aid , including medical supplies,
in otherwise inaccessible regions efficiently. Furthermore, virtual health
workers, enabled by artificial intelligence, could provide health services
in systems with acute shortages in skilled human resource for health. These
and other similar technologies provide promising alternatives for service
delivery  to  refugees  in  contexts  that  face  human  resource  constraints.

US quits 'biased' UN human rights council - BBC News
The US has pulled out of the United Nations Human Rights Council, calling it a "cesspool of political bias".

The "hypocritical and self-serving" body "makes a mockery of human rights", said US envoy to the UN Nikki Haley.

Ms Haley last year accused the council of "chronic anti-Israel bias" and said the US was reviewing its membership.

Formed in 2006, the Geneva-based council has been criticised for allowing countries with questionable human rights records to be members.

But activists said the US move could hurt efforts to monitor and address human rights abuses around the world.

CITI - Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative
The first step in deciding whether a project needs to be reviewed is to determine whether it meets the definition of research with human subjects. If it does not meet the definition, it does not require review by an IRB, although there may be ethical issues that must be addressed by the researcher's institution.

See the CITI Program module "Defining Research with Human Subjects - SBE" for a discussion about how to apply the following definitions:

"Research" means a systematic investigation, including research development, testing, and evaluation, designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge.

"Human subject" means a living individual about whom a researcher (whether professional or student) conducting research obtains the following:

Data through intervention or interaction with the individual
Identifiable private information
If it has been determined that a project meets the definition of research with human subjects, the next step is to determine the type of review it needs. The type of review usually determines who will conduct the review.
