Protecting services, saving lives – has the global pandemic changed our minds about sharing data?

Join Cori Crider (lawyer, investigator and co-founder of Foxglove) and Dr Wen Hwa Lee (CEO and Chief Scientist at AAAMD and co-director of Oxford Martin School’s Affordable Medicines Programme) as they discuss the collection, sharing and use of health data in a post-pandemic world.

About the speakers

Cori Crider is a lawyer, investigator and co-founder of Foxglove, a non-profit that exists to make the use of tech fair. Foxglove recently precipitated a pause to the scheme to pool the GP data of 55m NHS patients in England after challenging a lack of public consultation. It says of itself: ‘we stand up to the tech giants and governments, and stand up for a future where technology is used to benefit everyone, not just the rich and powerful.'

Cori herself has extensive experience in litigation, investigation and public advocacy, and has run teams addressing human rights abuses internationally. Her cases have challenged detention without trial in Guantanamo Bay, CIA torture, drone attacks, and mass surveillance.

Dr Wen Hwa Lee is the CEO and Chief Scientist at Action Against Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AAAMD). AAAMD is a research charity focused on tackling the leading cause of legal blindness in the developed world at its earliest stages with maximum affordability and accessibility. He is also a co-director of Oxford Martin School’s Affordable Medicines Programme and has advised international governments, integrating scientific, societal and economic impact.

Lee is a strong advocate of greater sharing and access to health data for research purposes. He believes the benefits far outweigh the risks.
