The New C19economics.org: A Platform to Support the Generation and Use of Health Economics Research to Tackle COVID-19

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, the scientific community has worked around the clock to produce evidence to support decision-makers in all aspects of pandemic management. As of April 2021, there are more than 78,000 articles published in peer reviewed journals and pre-prints (as indexed by collabovid.org). Those unprecedented collective research efforts have supported decisionmakers across the world on some of the toughest choices in decades, from closing economies, to procuring vaccines and medical supplies and equipment, and preparing for the uncertain year ahead.
