In einem Labor für Molekulare Diagnostik für Mensch und Tier in Jijiga, der Hauptstadt der Somali Region, konnten COVID-19 Tests ausgewertet werden. Dieses Labor wurde von der Schweiz vor dem Ausbruch der Pandemie für die gemeinsame Forschungsinitiative JOHI zur Verbesserung der Gesundheit von Pastoralisten aufgebaut.

Sowohl Forschende der HAFL, wie auch der HSLU nutzen bestehende Forschungspartnerschaften um Auswirkungen der COVID-19 Pandemie in bestimmten Bereichen besser zu verstehen.

Collection of COVID-19 research in the Global South

Projects World Map

The COVID-19 Research Project Tracker by UKCDR & GloPID-R is a live database of funded research projects across the world related to the current COVID-19 pandemic, as part of the COVID CIRCLE initiative. By providing an overview of research projects mapped against the priorities identified in the WHO Coordinated Global Research Roadmap: 2019 Novel Coronavirus, the overview supports funders and researchers to deliver a more effective and coherent global research response. It is one of the most comprehensive databases, covering a wide breadth of research disciplines.

This interactive space on southernvoice.org compiles research from countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America on the impact the pandemic is having on those regions.

In this evolving hub, you will find the knowledge of think tanks on a variety of life areas touched by the health crisis. They also offer possible answers to the dilemmas that have emerged during these daunting times. Many challenges our countries have in common. Others are unique to each context.
