The International Academy of Medical Ethics and Public Health was founded in 2016 on the basis of a commitment to international multi-disciplinary reflection in bioethics. The Academy focuses on the current challenges facing private and public interests in the context of families, universities, public institutions and all levels of government.
The mission of the Academy is to accomplish a permanent international review of innovative questions in bioethics which can benefit from a diversity of political perspectives, culture and philosophical orientation. The Academy functions as a bilingual central point for these exchanges. Its head office is located at René Descartes University (Sorbonne Paris Cité), Paris, France.
