Working groups


COVID-END has convened working groups to achieve and document quick-wins, and to establish processes to achieve and document longer-term wins, in seven areas:

  1. scoping where support and coordination is most needed and what principles should underpin such support and coordination
  2. engaging those already supporting decision-makers to work in more coordinated and efficient ways
  3. digitizing as many aspects of the work as possible to facilitate coordination and capture efficiencies
  4. synthesizing the evidence that already exists in ways that are more coordinated and efficient and that balance quality and timeliness
  5. recommending evidence-based approaches in ways that are more coordinated and efficient and that balance quality and timeliness
  6. packaging evidence and guidelines in ways that meet the needs of citizens, providers, policymakers and researchers in different contexts and languages
  7. sustaining the efforts that strengthen institutions and processes so that we are even better prepared for future challenges

If you would like to better understand what COVID-END is doing to help those already supporting decision-making to find and use the best evidence that is already out there (i.e. to support the evidence-demand side) and to help reduce duplication in and better coordinate the evidence syntheses, technology assessment and guidelines being produced (i.e., to support the evidence supply side), check out our working group webpages. You’ll find their terms of reference, co-chairs and members, and all of their meeting materials. Soon you’ll also find a listing of their achievements to date.
