The Innovative Bioethics Forum is a diverse international coalition interested in critical bioethics. Its mission is twofold: first, to ensure that those affected by science, medicine, and technology are properly at the forefront of initiatives to determine and implement ethical solutions impacting wellness, health, and health care; and, second, to explore the use of public engagement and policy beyond public health for the betterment of health and wellness. Incorporating social sciences, humanities, and diverse perspectives, the forum applies critical thinking, analysis, and theory, challenging common assumptions and the bioethics status quo.
