RESEARCH & ETHICS
Since 2000, HML IRB has provided research ethics approval for the international and domestic projects of UNICEF, The World Bank, Mathematica Policy Research, The Palladium Group/Futures Group, and many other organizations and independent investigators (see below). Our focus is on social & behavioral research in public health, HIV/AIDS, children, education, refugee & migration, economics, WASH, agriculture, M&E, etc. Many of these studies include subjects who are at high or very high risk situations (e.g., war, forced migration, physical and sexual abuse, forced labor, drug or sexual trafficking, violence, etc.).
We will be glad to provide references on request.
