Help scientists and physicians around the world learn more about COVID-19.
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has developed the ACS COVID-19 Registry, which is now available to all hospitals seeking to capture meaningful data about the COVID-19 patients they treat. The overarching priority of this registry is to collect important clinical patient data for a disease about which little is known. This registry will collect data on COVID-19 patients who did not undergo surgery as well as COVID-19 patients who did.
This document outlines the methods proposed in the Thirteenth General Programme of Work (GPW13) Impact Measurement Framework. The methods for each goal of the GPW13, centered around improving the health of billions of people by 2023, and how to calculate the indices of their goals are expounded upon, providing example calculations on both the global and country level. For more information on the GPW13, please visit their website.
The purpose of this document is to provide practical guidance to implement rapid mortality surveillance (RMS) and measure excess mortality in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a focus on implementation in low resource settings. This includes settings with largely paper-based systems of data collection.
Health and safety of health workers in COVID-19 - WHO
The survey is intended for health workers, managers, and practitioners providing services for protecting the health and safety of workers in health facilities. The results will be used to inform action at all levels for improving the protection of health and safety of health workers in the ongoing response to COVID-19. The survey is available in English, Chinese, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swahili.
COVID-19 PPE Survey - Global Anaesthesia, Surgery and Obstetric Collaboration (GASOC)
The purpose of this survey is to gain insight into individual countries’ approach to personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines during the current pandemic, and to compare with WHO guidelines. Information garnered will be collated and hopefully provide a resource to further the development of appropriate guidelines.
The Women and Equalities Committee is launching an inquiry and is currently accepting evidence. They want to hear about the different and disproportionate impact that the coronavirus – and measures to tackle it - is having on people with protected characteristics under the Equality Act.
Paying attention to women’s leadership and needs will strengthen the COVID-19 response, but it’s impossible to understand the scope of this issue without information about the composition of global and national response groups. In an effort to assess the current representation of women in leadership positions in the COVID-19 response, WGH is assessing the gender composition of the political and scientific response teams formed at national and global levels.
COVID-GBV Tracker - Gender Security Project
This form is being used to collect data that can go on to inform a comprehensive, global dataset on the prevalence, increase, and related matters concerning gender-based violence (across the spectrum) during the global lockdown toward COVID-19 containment.
This self-assessment form assesses and provides guidance for companies on the incorporation of gender in COVID-19 responses and to provide concrete action that can be taken while responding to and recovering from the pandemic. The survey includes questions and proposed actions across the value chain in 5 focus areas: leadership, workplace, marketplace, community, and sex-disaggregated data.
The COVID-19 Global Gender Response Tracker monitors policy measures enacted by governments worldwide to tackle the COVID-19 crisis, and highlights responses that have integrated a gender lens. It includes national measures that are directly addressing women’s economic and social security, including unpaid care work, the labour market and violence against women. The tracker is coordinated by UNDP with substantive leadership and technical contributions from UN Women.
The Lives Saved Tool is a mathematical modeling tool which allows users to estimate the impact of coverage change on mortality in low and middle income countries. It also estimates advantages, disadvantages, and various projections of the impact of COVID-19.
A technical package of five essential interventions with key elements to strengthen country health data and information systems and enable governments to track progress towards the health-related SDGs and national and subnational priorities.
We are inviting all mothers and fathers who are pregnant or have given birth to their baby during the COVID-19 pandemic to participate in a global research study to understand the psychosocial impact and changes to care experienced by parents during this time.
