Strengthening the epidemic and pandemic response in low-resource settings
The Research Prioritisation sub-group is developing recommendations for best practices to develop and apply regional and local research priorities during epidemics/pandemics. The Coordinated Funding sub-group is exploring models of rapid coordinated funding for research in response to epidemics/pandemics in LMICs.
This working group was formed during the COVID-19 pandemic from the COVID CIRCLE Initiative. The group’s focus has since expanded to include broader research for preparedness and response to epidemics and pandemics, as the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of a global approach to pandemic preparedness and response research. In the short term, the group has elected to focus on two priority areas: research priority setting and coordinated funding. Work on these topics is under way and will provide best practice standards and recommendations to the GloPID-R membership and the broader funders’ community.
The GloPID-R Secretariat is a project which receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 874667.
