Nevertheless, the use of these incentives remains controversial in some cases. In our free webinar, international experts will present their views on financial incentives in health research and health interventions, discuss the ethical questions around the topic with a focus on breastfeeding research, and answer questions from the audience. This webinar provides a platform to discuss this topic.
