Members

 

The coalition currently has 168 institutional members with more than 265 representatives from 59 countries. Membership is held primarily by institutions. There are also 98 individual members from 41 countries whose organizations have not yet joined or who are unaffiliated with an institution.

 

 

Members commit to:

 

  1. accelerate COVID-19 research in areas where the virus could wreak havoc on already-fragile health systems and cause the greatest health impact on vulnerable populations
  2. leverage each other’s expertise to fast-track research that will provide evidence needed to guide policies and practices on COVID-19 prevention, diagnosis, and case management in resource-limited settings.
  3. Promote and implement open sharing of research knowledge and data
  4. Champion equitable and affordable access to the proposed interventions.
