The Council on Health Research for Development (COHRED) is an international, independent, nonprofit and non‐governmental organisation with offices in Geneva (Switzerland), Gaborone (Botswana) and Belo Horizonte (Brazil). COHRED has over 20 years hands‐on experience in developing tools and delivering support to maximise the impact of research and innovation on the health and development of low and middle income country populations. Whilst COHRED’s mission is broad, its success in global research ethics is exemplified by the following quote:

The added value that COHRED has brought to our work has come mainly through technical, financial and strategic support. However, I think the most significant contributions are the two tools ‘Health Research Web’ and ‘RHInnO Ethics’. These have enabled us to develop our own national research priorities and provide online platforms for health research.Dr Samba Cor Sarr, Director of Research, Ministry of Health, Senegal
