For those regular readers of the Global Bioethics blog (there are those, aren't they?), please excuse my absence -- I was off on vacation. Now if this blog was not a one-man show, this sort of hiatus in blogging would never happen. So once again, I invite those interested in research ethics and bioethics in the 'developing world' --especially from Sub-Saharan Africa -- to be guest writers for this blog. Just drop me a line at email@example.com.
