COVID-END’s resources to support decision-makers include:
- a guide to key evidence sources (to make the most of what little time decision-makers or their staff have to find evidence to inform a particular decision)
- a four-part taxonomy of the decisions that may need to be made as the pandemic and pandemic response enter (or re-enter) different phases (which COVID-END is now using to create inventories of evidence and possibly a searchable database in future)
- a rapid-evidence model that can be used or adapted in any country to describe – in a three-hour turn-around time – the evidence that already exists to inform a particular decision (with additional models to be added as COVID-END identifies and documents them)
- tips and tools for those supporting decision-makers.
If you only have a few minutes to review these resources, consider starting with the tips and tools and then scanning the guide and then the taxonomy.
