Tuesday 30th May @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm GMT
The Medact Rights Research Network Quarterly is an online space for us to come together, share our work, discuss new projects, or delve into deep discussion about research that has caught your interest.
We’ll be welcoming two guest speakers from US-based health justice body Human Impact Partners (HIP), Elana Muldavin and Christine Mitchell who will be in conversation with our Economic Justice & Health campaigner Jordi.
They’ll be speaking about HIP’s new Research Code of Ethics, which has been designed with guidance from community organisers in order to foster research that’s accountable, responsible, equitable, and just to the communities it seeks to serve. Join us to talk about how Medact can do the same.
