All MSF abstracts must have an ethics statement approved by the responsible Medical Director or Project Owner (in the case of some innovation projects).

Refer to the respective abstract guidelines for more details on ethics requirements and links to the relevant ethics frameworks.

Non-MSF abstracts should have relevant ethics oversight.
