Implementing research studies during this pandemic can be made faster and easier by working collaboratively. 

Following feedback from our research workshops and requests from researchers around the world, we set up open virtual working groups to support research study implementation during this pandemic. The ongoing establishment of these 'COVID-19 Working Groups' aims to address the discussion and gather consensus on the emerging COVID-19 research gaps across low-resource settings. The following video shows the research priorities identified on the first calls of the Working Groups.

A discussion forum is available here for members of the different Working Group to communicate. Join the discussion and get involved!
