The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has created massive downward pressure on social, economic and health systems across the world. Cancer patients in all countries and settings have been directly and indirectly impacted.

The Covid-19 and Cancer Global Taskforce is an internationally representative group of cancer leaders set up in Feb 2020 with many leading senior clinicians, spanning the cancer care continuum from high income settings to many of the most complex and resource constrained countries in the world.

Through wide ranging collaborations the Taskforce has delivered over a hundred research publications on the management of cancer patients and the mitigation of the pandemic on cancer care. In addition to the extensive research portfolio there has been an active education and dissemination program through webinars and clinical case teaching.

As a collective dedicated to cancer care and control during pandemic waves and planning future mitigation and resilience strategies, we are always open to new members who are interested in research to policy.
