The headquarters of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in Paris, will host the 17th session of the International Bioethics Committee for discussion of three themes: the principle of respect for human vulnerability, the implications traditional medicine and the ethics of human cloning. The first issue is the respect for human vulnerability and personal integrity.

The principle is stated in Article 8 of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights 2005.

Participants should include their findings in a report that includes vulnerability in clinical settings, human research and biotechnological applications.

Another working group of the Committee will present its draft preliminary report on traditional medicine and its ethical implications. The subject was introduced this year in the program of work of the Committee due to its importance for developing countries, where about 80% of the population uses traditional medicine for primary health care.

The study underscores the need for regulations and ethical standards in the practice of traditional medicine and also in related research. The issue of cloning human cloning will be the theme of the second day.

The International Bioethics Committee of UNESCO concluded a review on the subject in 2009 and expects now to update the debate with scientific news and social issues most recent legal.

This year's report should include, for example, different options for the legal regulation of human reproductive cloning.

The 17th session of the Committee will be held between 26 and 27 October in Paris. All meetings are open to the public.
