COVID-END regularly convenes a global panel to proactively identify long-term, recurring and emergent issues that need to be prioritized in efforts to synthesize the best available research evidence to support decision-making about COVID-19. Their deliberations are informed by a pre-circulated briefing note and captured in a panel summary.
The panelists comprise a mix of strategic and ‘out-of-the-box’ thinkers and doers who collectively bring diverse perspectives to our horizon-scanning work, including:
- a mix of citizens, service providers, policymakers and researchers
- experience with one or more of public-health measures, clinical management of COVID-19 and pandemic-related conditions like mental-health issues, health-system arrangements, and economic and social responses (e.g., education and food security)
- being based in different regions (e.g., Americas, eastern Mediterranean, Europe, south-east Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and western Pacific)
- being based in a country or region where one or more of six languages is widely spoken (i.e., Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Portuguese or Spanish) while being able to read and either speak or write (even at a basic level) in English
