Progress on the Bio2USER study --- Some insights from the data

Hi Collegues,

I am delighted to let you know that I successfully completed the data collection a few months ago. At the moment I am in the process of drafting my manuscript for publication. There are a lot of interesting insights coming out from the data and I can’t wait to share with you at the upcoming summer school in September.

In a snap shot; BioUSER study has revealed that implementation of biometrics within a health care system in Malawi and possibly other developing countries, brings a range of potential ethical benefits and risks. In this regard, there is a need for more research to explore the benefits and harms of biometrics in practice. In addition, there is need for further discussion among stakeholders to weigh up risks/benefits and identify ethical and feasible policy option.

I also like to thank you all for your massive support  to my bursary project. You have really contributed a lot for me to reach this level.
