As COVID-19 continues to spread across many countries, there is new information every day about how the situation is changing.
Many organisations are creating and sharing resources to support response efforts to COVID-19, so we’ve pulled some of them together here to support your work.
We will continue to add to this page. Got something to share, or have you seen something we should include? Get in touch: email@example.com.

The uncertainty and disruption of COVID-19 can cause additional stress and anxiety.
Our recently-published Mitigating Operational Challenges in Humanitarian Health Research report looks at challenges our funded research teams have faced and solutions they adopted, providing practical guidance and suggestions for anyone undertaking research in emergency settings. Many of these challenges are likely to be similar to those faced during the COVID-19 outbreak. We have also produced a series of easy-to-read briefing sheets (available under the Briefing Sheet section) which summarise the most common challenges, impacts and mitigating strategies.

Elrha is launching an urgent funding call for research proposals to support the COVID-19 response in humanitarian settings. The aim is to fund public health research that will produce robust findings that will contribute to the effectiveness of the current humanitarian response and increase the evidence base for future responses to similar infectious disease outbreaks. Given the global travel restrictions and social distancing measures in place to respond to COVID-19, applicants must be able to demonstrate that their proposed research is relevant, feasible and ethical.
