National Health Research Ethics Committee (NHREC) releases latest list of registered ethics committee in Nigeria. According to the Chairman of NHREC, Professor Clement Adebamowo, these are the committees that have met the minimum requirement for registration as functional ethics committees in Nigeria and whose composition and operations meet the conditions specified in the National Code for Health Research Ethics (NCHRE). The Code requires that these committees be audited every 2 years so some may be dropped or their categorization change while new committees will be added as they complete the registration process. (Please note that all committees in this list have valid registration with NHREC pending review to be conducted later in the year).
