The dissemination of quality, timely and understandable information is key in slowing down transmission and avoiding overburdening the healthcare system. We have been supporting dissemination of evidence-based messaging on COVID-19 by trusted sources (e.g. WHO, national public health agencies, research institutions) mainly via Twitter.

To further IUHPE contribution to this collective effort, we are compiling a list of resources from key sources, IUHPE institutional members, Global Working Groups and Networks, academic publishers as well as collections of resources. We will be updating this page as new resources are created, or we learn about them.

We are open to receiving suggestions to add to this list – especially if they have a health promotion approach – just click on this form and let IUHPE know about them!
