COVID-19: Making Our Community Available

Deadline – May 6
– Evidence that can contribute to the medical community that is relevant to face the pandemic, based on their experience with patients (treatments, testicles, patient profiles, etc.)
– Evaluation of public initiatives and of the different actors.
– Impact of COVID-19 on the medical profession and future of medicine
– The information will be public
– The collaborating organizations will be named in the final report.

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.
This wave was supported by Ipsos and Datum.
