Title & Abstract:
“Building the evidence base for global health security policy”
The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the need for an evidence base to support decision making in global health security and pandemic preparedness and response. We have built an integrated architecture of data sources and tools to support global health security, which can be found at https://ghsidea.org, and are part of the global.health team, curating over 50 million epidemiologic line data for COVID. This talk will present the range of tools we have developed- including COVID AMP, our methodology and process for curating policy data, and some of the analyses we have published.
