International COVID-19 Awareness and Responses Evaluation Study

Understanding people’s concerns about COVID-19, their perceptions, beliefs, and attitudes about public health policies, and how they impact what people are (and are not) willing to do will be important for informing policy strategy and how they are communicated, to ensure the best health and economic outcomes.

The iCARE Study will capture key data on people’s awareness, attitudes, and behaviors as they relate to the COVID-19 policies, as well as the impacts that COVID-19 is having on people’s physical and mental health, financial situation, and quality of life.

Data from approximately 250,000 people around the world will be analyzed to understand what government policies are (and are not) influencing behavior and outcomes, and in whom these policies are most or least effective. This data can be used to inform governments on the efficacy of policy measures on both people’s behavior, and on key health and quality of life outcomes.

    The COVID Tracking Project

    The COVID Tracking Project is a volunteer organization launched from The Atlantic and dedicated to collecting and publishing the data required to understand the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States.

    Every day, their teams collect data on COVID-19 testing and patient outcomes from all 50 states, 5 territories, and the District of Columbia. The dataset is currently in use by national and local news organizations across the United States and by research projects and agencies worldwide. Their data API (which allows sites and apps to import our dataset automatically) receives about two million requests per day.

    On April 15, they launched the COVID Racial Data Tracker, a partnership between the COVID Tracking Project and the Center for Antiracist Research that collects, publishes, and analyzes racial data on the pandemic within the United States.

            Gender & COVID-19

            This website is the product of an international committee that brings together academics who conduct real time gender analysis to identify and document the gendered dynamics of COVID-19 and gaps in preparedness and response.

            The international multi-disciplinary team has a goal of advancing comparative gender-analysis of the outbreak to date with the aim of developing knowledge to mitigate against negative downstream effects of global public health policies created in response to the pandemic.

              COVID-19 Behaviour Tracker

              This site tracks global behaviors during the COVID-19 pandemic.

              The site tracks how people across the world are responding to the coronavirus pandemic. The global survey, launched in partnership with YouGov (UK) the first week of April, is collecting fortnightly data from 29 countries to explore the public’s attitudes and health behaviors as the situation evolves.

              Through this survey they are monitoring how compliant individuals are with COVID-19 safety measures, such as self-isolation and avoiding unnecessary travel. They are also looking into a range of other relevant behaviours and measures, from hygiene to quality of life.

                    COVID-19 Digital Classroom

                    The COVID-19 Digital Classroom is a collective of international organizations who wish to provide access to high-quality healthcare.

                    Since populations around the world need rapid, coordinated, and focused support to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic, patients in countries with limited preparedness and response resources are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19. Sharp increases in COVID-19 caseloads are likely to overwhelm health systems in countries already facing shortages of nurses, physicians, and other health workers.

                    Community-based health workers need access to high-quality and easy-to-use information that will help increase their ability to treat and support patients and to deliver health services safely.

                    The COVID-19 Digital Classroom is leveraging digital technologies and existing content distribution channels to ensure every health worker has the information they need to help their own communities, wherever in the world they are providing care, from city centers to the last mile.
