The three pillars of our institution have come together with one common goal: contribute to the COVID-19 response.
Much like the three musketeers, our three departments (research, policy and global development, and education and training) have come together as never before to respond to one common threat. Our scientific expertise in infectious diseases, immunology, clinical trials, maternal and child health, environmental and climate health, and planetary health; as well as our background in advocacy, policy, international cooperation and translation, has placed us in a unique position to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
Throughout 2020, ISGlobal launched 31 COVID-19-related research projects, published 27 policy documents, participated in 17 national and international advisory committees and/or task forces, participated in over 600 media events (television, radio, webinars etc.), and 18 training activities.
