The COVID-19 Evidence Network to support Decision-making (COVID-END) helps:
- those supporting decision-making about COVID-19 to find and use the best available evidence (i.e. to support the evidence-demand side of the pandemic response)
- researchers to avoid waste by reducing duplication in and better coordinating the COVID-19 evidence syntheses, technology assessments and guidelines being produced (i.e., to support the evidence-supply side of the pandemic response).
COVID-END is a time-limited network that brings together more than 50 of the world’s leading evidence-synthesis, technology-assessment and guideline-development groups around the world. It covers the full spectrum of the pandemic response, from public-health measures and clinical management to health-system arrangements and economic and social responses. It also covers the full spectrum of contexts where the pandemic response is playing out, including low-, middle- and high-income countries.
