GCPR RESEARCH SPRINT INVITATION
5th January 2020 – The WHO notified Member States under the International Health Regulations (2005) (IHR) of an outbreak of pneumonia of unknown cause in Wuhan city, China. The pathogen is a novel (new) coronavirus.
30th January 2020 – the outbreak was declared by the WHO International Regulations Emergency Committee to constitute a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.
11th March 2020 – WHO declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a pandemic.
Since then governments worldwide have been taking vast and varied decisions sometimes changing on a daily basis to meet the immediate threats.
Less is being done to assess the longer term and systemic impacts of current policy responses and to ensure a just and fair transition for all.
Join us for a research sprint!
We will take three hours and we look for
- official links to Gov sites with policies
- point of contact in regions we cover
- more organisations
- additional resources
You are a fit for this project if
