The South African Research Ethics Training Initiative (SARETI) is the oldest Africa-based Master's programme in the field of health research ethics. The programme, initially a collaboration between the University of Pretoria's School of Health Systems and Public Health and the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN)'s School of Psychology in association with Johns Hopkins University, equips African health professionals with the education and practical experiences needed to provide sound ethics review of the increasingly numerous and complex health studies taking place in Africa. SARETI started in 2003 and to date has graduated 1 PhD, 14 Masters (with several more close to completion), and 22 non-degree fellows, and is currently awaiting a funding decision for a third cycle of Fogarty/National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding for 2012 - 2016.
