Our team is active in the ethics working group within the Kompetenznetz Public Health COVID-19.


Our team is active discussing the ethical and social implications of the pandemic. PD Dr. Jan-Christoph Heilinger is serving as co-lead of the ethics working group within the Kompetenznetz Public Health COVID-19. This Research Network is an ad hoc consortium of more than 25 scientific societies and organisations active in the field of public health, representing thousand scientists from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Results of this work – including policy briefs on ethical issues on pandemic decision making under conditions of uncertainty, vaccine distribution, the global dimensions of a coordinated response to the pandemic and other aspects of the current global health emergency – can be found here.
