How to get involved:

The COVID-19 and Cancer Global Taskforce is an open collaboration between healthcare and scientific colleagues around the world dedicated to improving our understanding of the impact of the pandemic on cancer patients and services with the aim to better improve clinical practise, mitigate the impact of the pandemic and build stronger systems. We have a range of ongoing projects from understanding the differences in risk to our patients from the SARS-CoV-2 virus through to major policy programs on COVID vaccines and cancer & the long-term impact on cancer systems and outcomes from global interventions. We use a range of methods from ‘classical’ clinical epidemiology to ethnography and other social science methods, as well as political science and health economics.

The Taskforce is fully open to new members who might be interested in contributing to our ongoing programs or wish to bring in different perspectives from different countries.
