The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) is pleased to announce a new page on its website -- the Belmont Report Historical Archive . We encourage everyone to visit the site and review this important part of the history of human subject protections.
The Belmont Archive includes:
- Belmont Report Oral History Interviews -- transcripts of interviews with members, staff and consultants of the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research (1974-78); OHRP will soon add the video versions of these interviews;
- Training Video -- a 9-minute educational/training video with highlights from the Oral History interviews;
- Commemorative Program Video -- a one-hour edited version of the November 16, 2004 Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) ceremony honoring the members, staff and consultants of the National Commission; and
- History of the Belmont Report -- a short history of the Belmont Report and the current human subject protection regulations.
