Global Bioethics Initiative (GBI) is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) international, non-profit organization co-founded in 2011 by Ana Lita, Ph.D. (applied ethics), and Charles Debrovner, M.D. (retired fertility expert). GBI is associated with the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI), which aims at facilitating an exchange of information and development of partnerships within UN offices as well as with not-for-profit organizations around the world, to enhance interaction with an understanding of the work of the United Nations. Many of the issues addressed by GBI are relevant to the work of the UN, including reproductive and sexual rights, human organ trafficking, and the ethics of population aging.
