Adapting ethical guidelines for adolescent health research to street-connected children and youth in low-and middle-income countries: a case study from western Kenya. BMC medical ethics, 16(1), 89.
Abstract: Street-connected children and youth (SCCY) in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) have multiple vulnerabilities in relation to participation in research. These require additional considerations that are responsive to their needs and the social, cultural, and economic context, while upholding core ethical principles of respect for persons, beneficence, and justice. The objective of this paper is to describe processes and outcomes of adapting ethical guidelines for SCCY’s specific vulnerabilities in LMIC.
