Ethics in the third world got a shot in the arm last week in the form of a $10 million grant to the University of Toronto. Here's the news from the Bioethics.net blog:
The University of Toronto has launched a new effort in the developing world, the product of their continuing effort to expand bioethics - considerably - in terms of its focus on the world's health at large. The program is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation and others for $10 million. Toronto has become the leading program in the world in executing large-scale initiatives in bioethics and this is another great example.
