Before the study initiation, the research team/CAB/Advocacy groups musts discuss what social harms could result due to participation. Additionally, there must be a plan to ensure confidentiality and safety to participants. In this case study, it doesn’t appear that law enforcement would be an option for safety because homosexuality is illegal so the advocacy groups would play a vital role to assist with finding options for safety. Maybe a non-publicized safe house where participants can go after initially signing up for the trail.
