Adequate, reliable and timely information in times of the COVID-19 pandemic

Coutinho e Padilla

In times of the COVID-19 pandemic, adequate, reliable and timely information becomes even more relevant. The Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization office in Brazil and key partners have developed initiatives to improve access, sharing and dissemination of the information and knowledge produced, translated and systematized about COVID-19 as a technical contribution to the fight against the pandemic. This article presents some of these resources. The production and synthesis of knowledge made available in a timely manner to professionals on the frontline of response to COVID-19 is essential and a basic requirement
for improving response capacity. It is also important to strengthen and increase investment in the production of scientific evidence, and to recognize and build upon the tireless work of a large group of scientists and institutions that continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
