Transparency is a central component of the ethical governance of research. In the context of COVID-19, transparency is key to promote public trust in research and in the response to the pandemic. If society and all stakeholders know which research studies are taking place, and the existing mechanisms to ensure studies are conducted ethically, they will be more willing to contribute to research efforts and to trust in the results of research. Therefore, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) recommends relevant national health authorities take action to strengthen the transparency of research during the pandemic.
