Research in global health emergencies
Our current in-depth inquiry is examining how research may be conducted ethically in global health emergencies.
To be published in January 2020
Recent global health emergencies have highlighted how uncertainties about what is ethically acceptable during emergencies can impede progress of potentially valuable research, or alternatively contribute to the risks of unethical practice passing undetected.
This project is exploring how research may be conducted ethically in global health emergencies.
The report will be published in early 2020.
