Launched as a 'concept' in Science, the ELSI2.0 Collaboratory aims to anticipate and address the Ethical, Legal and Social Implications (ELSI) of high impact research in the life sciences, and accelerate the translation of ELSI research findings into practice and policy around the world. One way they aim to achieve this is by providing an infrastructure for international collaboration in real time, using web 2.0 technologies.
Led by the World Health Organization and supported by key partners including the Fogarty International Center, Global Forum on Bioethics in Research, Global Health Network, Global Network of WHO Collaborating Centres and Wellcome, Epidemic Ethics is a global community of bioethicists building on pre-existing expertise and resources to provide real-time, trusted, contextual support to communities, policy makers, researchers, and responders in relation to the ethical issues arising out of global health emergencies, with a current focus on the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Global Health Bioethics hub provides resources to enable people conducting global health bioethics research, or reviewing health research, in both developing and developed countries to communicate about issues in global health research ethics, share models of good research practice, collaborate on developing research ideas or applying for research grants, and have ready access to a wide range of resources on research ethics.
Global Health Social Science is an open access collaborative forum for anyone working in global health and using qualitative and participatory research methods. They aim to provide a space to facilitate dialogue, share new resources and reflect on practice.
The International Health Regulations Strengthening Project is a UK Aid funded technical assistance project contributing to international efforts to improve global health security through increased compliance with the WHO International Health Regulations (2005).
This dedicated knowledge hub shares learning from the project on preventing, detecting and responding to public health emergencies.
