We await your contributions, writing to Florencia Rojo,

As part of this program, we completed a data collection in Latin America to support the needs of the University of Birmingham Clinical Immunology Service, in an initiative to improve diagnostic testing for COVID-19 antibodies.

We have also developed three monitoring waves over COVID-19 for public dissemination of large-scale data, surveying thousands of doctors in 13 Latin American countries.

LAST MEASUREMENT – WAVE 3 – Fielded in 2nd half of April

Monitoring, evaluation of test capabilities, treatments, patient profiles and WHO evaluation

In this measurement focused on Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico, the monitoring of key variables is updated, analyzing the availability of  tests (results, reliability and delivery times) comparing with data from other regions.

The treatments implemented, drugs used, profile of outpatients and hospitalized patients were also evaluated.

Finally, the contribution of WHO and the reasons for such evaluation were also assessed.



WAVE 2 – Fielded in first half of April

Monitoring, risk of resource collapse, and future prospects

This wave analyzes the assessment by physicians of the policies implemented by national states, detailing the measures that gain greater support, the involvement of the population against the pandemic, the evaluation of hospital infrastructure detailing potential risk of collapse of different resources by country, and finally the physician perspective of the future.

You can access the full regional report in English,  Spanish and Portuguese

This wave was supported by Ipsos and Datum.
