The Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research supports effective and equitable problem-solving approaches in the global health and humanitarian response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The novelty, speed, scale, and the differing, evolving patterns of the pandemic, make it difficult to establish informed policy and practice. The Dahdaleh COVID-19 Portal offers credible, intelligible, and useable sources of information. It also offers the Dahdaleh Institute’s framework for understanding COVID-19 as a global public health emergency.

The Beta Portal provides regular Updates and is structured around five Topics. As the pandemic develops, so does our understanding, and the Portal may need to be revised in the future. Our commitment is to offer the highest quality of information and insight available at this time.


The Dahdaleh Institute values the perspectives and feedback of Portal users.
