It seeks to fulfill its mission by integrating research ethics and public health ethics courses into the KSPH Master's in Public Health program, strengthening local ethical review of research, teaching bioethics to medical students at the University of Kinshasa, holding regional workshops at health care centers, and offering a two-week intensive bioethics course to Francophone African medical professionals in 2008. The center also seeks to engage students and faculty members of the faculties of law, medicine and humanities at the University of Kinshasa in ethical discussion and dialogue, and form cooperative institutional ties with these faculties.
