Sama believes that bioethics could form an important basis for monitoring and creating pressure for reforms especially in the fields of clinical trials – research; evolving ethical guidelines for critical areas of medical practice, such as Assisted Reproductive Technologies, Sex Selection, access to care, cost of health care, equity in access to drugs, etc. Sama has been a part of National Bioethics Conferences which was an initiative of the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics (IJME) in order to establish a broad, independent, and participatory national bioethics platform.
