We invite you to submit an article to the topic: The Governance of New Coronavirus Pandemic: Bridging Research and Policy, to share with the public the latest knowledge on the disease. The editorial office is dedicated to process the submissions with high priority.
The APCs will be covered by Global Health Institute of Wuhan University, no charge to authors.
In December 2019, the first patient infected with coronavirus（2019-nCoV, or COVID-19, or SARS-COV-2）was identified in Wuhan, China. The outbreak developed from a localized epidemic to a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) as declared by the World Health Organization and has generated an extensive impact on the world. It is a typical emerging infectious disease that has been found to have a long incubation period and which can be transmitted via droplets, or person-to-person contact, etc. To generate policy recommendations and provide input for different countries to put in place a comprehensive governance framework on the outbreak so as to undertake effective measures, the Global Health Research and Policy (GHRP), through a thematic series, publishes recent progress and findings about the epidemic with the following themes:
- Relevant estimation and evaluation models, such as outbreak simulations, disease burden, socioeconomic burden, etc.
- Governance system research, such as multilateral collaboration mechanisms among public and private players.
- Health system strengthening, such as the development of an emergency response system, financing, assistance, etc.
- Surveillance, public reporting and formulation of relevant laws and regulations
- Comparative study between COVID-19 and SARS, Ebola, MERS, etc. focusing on the prevention and control so as to generate governance policy recommendations
- Relevant guidelines at the hospital, community and individual levels
- Comprehensive summary of each country’s actions and experience in response to the COVID-19 outbreak and their implications to other countries
- Understanding of the impact of the outbreak in China, the globe, and other countries
- Other relevant clinical and laboratory research which can generate policy implications
