Cochrane Africa & GESI COVID-19 research survey

Cochrane Africa and the Global Evidence Synthesis Initiative (GESI) conducted a survey of network members in low- and middle income countries, to gather and share information on the ongoing and planned research responses to the COVID-19 pandemic amongst those involved with evidence synthesis. The survey was circulated on 24 March 2020, and by 14 April 2020 we received 60 responses. The survey remains open – to complete the survey click here.

You can view the responses to the survey here. Results reported include information about the respondents and the organisations they work for, respondents’ plans to conduct primary or secondary research, COVID-19 research questions received from by policy-makers or practitioners, and respondents’ willingness to share evidence briefs/summaries/rapid reviews.  We are submitting the questions to Cochrane’s list of priority questions.

All available evidence summaries may be submitted to the Africa Evidence Network and made available on the McMaster COVID-19 evidence sources page.
