- Informed consent is fundamental to ethical health research.
- Significant challenges are experienced in obtaining consent for research, particularly in poor settings.
- Consenting processes can be strengthened by taking into account local social, cultural, and economic contexts in the design and administration of consent forms.
- Institutional wide support is important in ensuring consistency in the consenting process for all studies within a given institution.
