GA4GH releases Code of Ethics and Community Conduct

27 Sep 2023

The new code offers a tool for supporting clear communication in such a diverse environment, and resolving misunderstandings and disagreements that do arise and cannot be addressed informally.

Proactively supporting an engaged, welcoming, and safe community, the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) has released a Code of Ethics and Community Conduct (CECC).


The new code debuted at the GA4GH 11th Plenary meeting and associated events, such as GA4GH Connect and the National Initiatives Forum Meeting. From today, it applies to all activities involving GA4GH contributors.
