PREPARED at UN University – Full report

A dynamic, high-spirited Kick-off in Bonn, Germany

September 2022 — Crisis, research and action were the themes of a dynamic kick-off meeting at the UN University in Bonn for PREPARED. Over three days, the PREPARED team gathered from across continents to share our passion for human rights, values and good research. Our work to create an ethics and integrity framework for rapid and effective research during global crises has hit the ground running.

The Bonn report shares our early considerations with the public. Highlights include the case studies of Cyprus’ Covid-19 response amidst a frozen conflict, and the perspectives of HIV positive sex workers during Kenya’s Covid-19 lockdowns. The report also links to the webinar “Research during global crises”, featuring experts from the Wellcome Trust and WHO.
