Welcome to PREPARE
PREPARE is a UK Natural Environment Research Council knowledge exchange initiative with the overall aim to integrate the information and expertise required to assess the implications of pharmaceutical usage during a major disease outbreak for the environment, and the risk posed to current wastewater infrastructure.
The PREPARE Initiative aims to inform policy, regulation and emergency planning to ensure that ecotoxicologic and human health risks associated with pharmaceutical usage under pandemic and epidemic conditions are thoroughly assessed utilising all and currently available knowledge.
