News from ISGlobal
The Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) is launching a new series of analytical documents aimed at contributing to the fight against COVID-19 and orienting the strategy for lifting mitigation and confinement measures. The collection will, initially, comprise 17 documents in which 23 experts will endeavour, from the standpoint of research, to identify and respond to some of the major challenges posed by the current crisis. The aim of this collection, coordinated by ISGlobal's Policy team, is to contribute evidence-based information and the answers to questions about the main topics involved in the management of the COVID-19 crisis. It is possible that further documents will be added depending on the issues and questions that arise as the pandemic continues.
The main focus of the analysis will be on the scientific and epidemiological aspects of the crisis, but considerations related to economic, social, public health and communication aspects will also be included. The final output will make up a guide to the concept of what the authors are calling 'precision public health'.
