Our Values


The scientific method determines our approach. Theory has to answer to evidence while ensuring the conceptual framework, sources, and methods are declared and clear.


Care for people drives us. Disease, suffering, and death are part of the human condition, and we should all support each other to minimise harm. We are not interested in accusation and blame.


We have faith and belief in human ingenuity to find better solutions, grasp the nettle, and establish good outcomes grounded in reality.
