Purpose of HAUREC

HAUREC was established in 2014 in order to provide independent guidance, advice, and decision (in the form of “approval/recommendation/stipulation/disapproval”) on health research or other specific research protocols involving human participants. It does this while safeguarding the rights, safety and welfare of the participants. It also has a mandate to oversee all approved research studies. HAUREC is committed to its duty of reporting to UNCST on all its activities.
