One year ago the world witnessed the worst Ebola outbreak in history. In response, a panel of 12 members was invited by the WHO Director General to advise on the ethical implications of the potential use of unregistered interventions during an epidemic. More than a year later, as the epidemic wanes, it is time to reflect on the effect of the panel’s advice on the various stakeholders involved in research during the outbreak response, the challenges they faced, and the implications of these recommendations for research conducted during future epidemics.
The webinar will be presented live online, and will provide opportunities to participants and viewers to interact with the speakers and ask questions or provide comments.
