Projects

Re-Check is involved in several projects with international partners

GIJN Guide “Investigating Health & Medicine”

GIJN Guide “Investigating Health & Medicine”

This guide focuses on medicines and medical devices. It aims to provide journalists with the tools and knowledge to independently assess the evidence, critically appraise the risk-benefit ratio of any given product or policy, and expose corruption and malpractice. It can be read as a textbook, one chapter at a time, or used selectively to support your work. Available online here.
Authored by Catherine Riva and Serena Tinari (Re-Check.ch), commissioned by the GIJN, 2020.

#GhoMan – Chasing the Ghosts

#GhoMan – Chasing the Ghosts

A project to develop a systematic method for investigating and mapping ghost-management at work in scientific research, medical practice and public health.It combines academic approach and investigative journalism.
We aim to make this method easily applicable and available to academic researchers, investigative journalists and other players (i.e., policymakers, consumers advocates, non-governmental organizations) wishing to explore the phenomenon and visualize it at work. Our method and tools are open access.

HPV Vaccination

HPV Vaccination

Since 2008 Re-Check investigates the HPV vaccination case. It’s an issue of public interest, as these vaccines are recommended to millions of healthy individuals.
On our dedicated page, you will find all details about our publications, open letters, a poster we presented at the 2018 Preventing Overdiagnosis conference (PODC), and the regulatory documents we obtained from the FDA through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

List of Independent Health Experts

List of Independent Health Experts

October 2020, Re-Check joined The Lown List of Industry-Independent Health Experts’s coordinating panel.
The List was born in 2008, when Jeanne Lenzer and Shannon Brownlee published on the British Medical Journal the piece Naming names: is there an (unbiased) doctor in the house? Shortly after, journalist Gary Schwitzer and public health researcher Adriane Fugh-Berman came on board the coordinating panel.
