The Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) funding aims to enhance the capabilities of IRBs in the public health sector, to ensure rigour in the ethics review process for the protection of human research subjects.  This will also facilitate them to achieve minimum standards laid out in the MOH IRB OG (Operational Guidelines) and other legislative requirements upon their eventual implementation.  It has been supporting the SingHealth Centralised Institutional Review Board (CIRB) and the National Healthcare Group Domain Specific Review Board (NHG DSRB) to work towards building true capabilities in the funded IRBs and seeking improvement in standardising ethics review as well as protection of research subjects.
