More information

COVID-END is a time-limited network of 46 organizations and networks conducting COVID-19-related evidence syntheses and supporting policymakers and stakeholders to use COVID-19-related evidence syntheses in decision making. It aims to enhance coordination and reduce inappropriate duplication of effort in the evidence-synthesis response to COVID-19 (and in the primary studies that feed into these evidence syntheses) and it does so across the full breadth of pandemic response (including public-health measures, clinical management, health-system arrangements, and economic and social responses).
