COVID-END Community


The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated that evidence and evidence synthesis are needed to support rapid decision-making in health and social systems. Given the unprecedented scale of decision-makers’ evidence needs, large-scale collaboration and shared learning within the evidence synthesis community is required.

To support collaboration and learning, COVID-END supports the ‘COVID-END Community,’ and invites individuals with the following attributes to join its listserv:

  1. creating and/or using evidence syntheses, technology assessments, and/or guidelines as the focus of their support to decision-making about COVID-19
  2. engaging with decision-making about COVID-19 by citizens/service users, providers, and/or health- and social-system policymakers
  3. keen to learn from others about how to support decision-making about COVID-19 and willing to explore challenges and/or share experiences through online discussions
  4. share the values of the COVID-END partnership (see the list of principles at the bottom of the COVID-END website homepage)

Please consider joining the COVID-END Community and bringing it to the attention of others who share the above attributes.

  1. resources for evidence packaging and evidence synthesis
  2. critical appraisal and strength-of-evidence assessments in rapid COVID-19 reviews
  3. COVID-19 knowledge hubs
  4. priority setting for COVID-19 evidence syntheses
  5. registration of synthesis titles and protocols
  6. open-access principles for synthesis publications
