Ethics Advisory Group (EAG)

The Ethics Advisory Group (EAG) was established to provide ethical guidance on The Union's work at national and international levels. Its role is to safeguard the dignity and rights of study participants and to promote ethical standards in lung health services. The EAG is made up of six to eight Union members, who are selected to ensure not only professional and geographic diversity, but also representation of low-income countries and community groups. Current members are citizens of South Africa, India, Sudan, Australia, Ethiopia and the USA. They are professionals in the fields of social science, research, clinical medicine and public health.
