The COVID-19 pandemic has awakened deep concerns about our healthcare systems and systemic inequity. It continues to pose a threat to humanity with imminent potential for panic and fear that disrupts our everyday lives. Today, we witness solidarity. International communities are slowly coming together as one to collaborate, coordinate, share lessons learnt and help one another. Thus, global cooperation especially in the sphere of research development is essential to create new alliances and creative solutions.
The 11th National Paediatric Research Conference: a 2nd Paediatric Bioethics Symposium takes its inspiration from our original symposium in 2017 where a declaration was made. With the difficult decision to hold a virtual Conference in 2021, we continue to critically explore the many intersections of bioethics, health humanities, and the worlds with which we engage.
As we converge together digitally from around the region—recognising that we are people with different values, beliefs, identities, perspectives, experiences, knowledge, and skills—let us focus on the many strengths of our diverse community to address these challenges, envision these possibilities, and chart new paths forward.
