The case of Public Health emergencies


Im Rahmen des World Health Summit 2016 wird das Centre Virchow-Villermé Gastgeber des Workshops "Fostering Open Science in Global Health" sein.

This workshop aims to address collaboration and open dialogue in Global Health related research using the example of data and results sharing during public health emergencies. In February 2016, the World Health Organization has declared that the clusters of brain-damaged babies born in Brazil - linked to but not yet proven to be caused by the Zika virus - constitute a public health emergency of international concern. This became the first test to the proposed WHO global norm of transparent sharing of data and results during public health emergencies - only few weeks after publishing the results of this consultation.
