COVID-19 Funded Research Projects In Focus
As part of the release of the 6-month update, we have updated our deeper looks at three key themes that emerged during our analysis:
To date, the COVID-19 pandemic has claimed over a million lives and devastated health systems across the globe. However, the true scale of the impact of this pandemic remains underestimated, with limited evidence on the indirect health impacts secondary to the global pandemic response.
From disruptions in healthcare delivery to impoverishment from loss of livelihoods, there is likely to be devastating consequences on other health conditions.
Here, we provide a snapshot of funded research activity focused on the indirect health impacts of COVID-19.
The pandemic has triggered an unprecedented global research response across multiple disciplines to gain insights into this novel infection and its impacts. To date, thousands of research activities have been embarked on with a predominance of research projects in higher income countries. Strengthening research capacity, particularly in low-resourced settings, facilitates an equitable response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Research capacity strengthening activities are purposeful initiatives which enhance the ability of individuals, organisations and systems to successfully undertake research
Here, we provide a snapshot of funded research activities with capacity strengthening as an objective.
As the coronavirus pandemic evolves, there is increased interest in the emerging phenomenon, now commonly referred to as “Long Covid”.
To date, there is a lack of consensus on a clear definition, diagnosis, clinical characterization and management, rehabilitation and appropriate support for sufferers in addition to difficulties in ascertaining its prevalence.
Here, we provide a snapshot of funded research activity focusing on various aspects of Long Covid.
