The world is facing one of the most severe health crises. The spread of Covid-19 occurs in a context of scientific and technological evolution which makes information diffuse and overwhelming. Every day, health professionals and decision-makers as well as the general public receive documents and publications from different origins. However, in a health war situation today, finding information quickly becomes a strategic advantage for making the relevant decisions and implementing the necessary actions.
It is to meet this objective that a team from theNational School of Public Health (ENSP) has developed this thematic platform which aims to facilitate the prioritization and search for information related to Covid-19. The solution offers multi-criteria research and access to different resources: scientific documents, technical documents, audio recordings, video capsules, etc.
We consider that decision-makers are coping with the emergency imposed by a crisis of an international scale and for which the world was not prepared. As a result, scientific evidence is still lacking. Any information, whatever its nature, can contain some truth and inform the decision. It is in this sense that the objective of COVIDABA is to share, inform and facilitate access to knowledge while disclaiming any responsibility for the scientific relevance of this information.
