Join us in 2024
CG is initiating a funding campaign to support key activities this year
Dear CG Supporter,
The important work we have done so far since 2020 has only been possible due to thousands of donations large and small from members of the public as well as contributions from foundations.
We are now asking you to join us in 2024 as we prepare an ambitious set of activities worldwide to analyse the harms of Covid policies and challenge the mainstream pandemic narrative with rigorous evidence and analysis.
We have four main priorities this year: country evaluations, global reviews, public inquiries and preparing for the next pandemic.
Our work is critical to ensuring that, next time, our pandemic responses better balance societal trade-offs and maximise the health & well-being of all people.
Support us with a monthly or one-time donation: here The more we raise, the more we can do
Support our 4 priority activities in 2024
This year, we are prioritising four critical activities:
- Independent national Covid pandemic evaluations.
We will soon launch our first round of country evaluations. These will systematically analyse the data on the social harms of Covid policies with the goal of influencing the national debate about the Covid response, including public inquiries and formal government evaluations. Current plans include the US, Canada and UK, but we anticipate rapidly expanding to India, South Africa, Uganda, Germany and elsewhere.
- Global systematic reviews.
We are organising a series of global systematic reviews, building on our previous work, to plug significant evidence gaps. Current plans include reviews on excess mortality, macroeconomics effects, and child development, as well as control strategies such as lockdown and focused protection.
- Inquiry into The UK Covid-19 Inquiry.
We will soon begin a formal analysis of how the UK Public Covid Inquiry has engaged with scientific opinion and interpretation. We have been covering the inquiry, with weekly analysis in Unherd, since it began in June 2023. Once we complete our report, we will hold a public event in London and submit the analysis to the Inquiry as evidence.
- Preparing for the next pandemic.
We plan to challenge the dominant biomedical model of pandemic preparedness and promote viewpoint diversity and scientific debate in policy advisory systems. To start, we will organise a series of workshops and trainings worldwide to help the scientific and policy community to better understand the negative impacts of strict infection control policies on society.
Together these initiatives will help us build an accurate picture of the impact of the global responses to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic; this can rigorously challenge mainstream thinking and help inform more compassionate and scientifically based policy approaches for the future.
We hope you will join us in this mission so that we can promote policy responses that maximise health and wellbeing for all.
