The European Burden of Disease Network established the Burden of COVID-19 Task Force, as a sub-group of WG2 Infectious Diseases. The TF welcomes members who are conducting or interested in launching national studies to estimate the burden of disease of COVID-19.
Its aims are to:
- Share experiences in national burden of COVID-19 studies
- Support each other with calculations, model assumptions, data gaps
- Harmonize methodologies and align strategies for communicating results
- Discuss research projects and upcoming evidence on long-COVID
The TF meets approximately every six weeks. We select a different topic for each meeting, and focus mostly on technical discussions. We also have the opportunity to arrange ad-hoc meetings and discussions as needed/requested by members of the TF, and to use the burden-eu discussion forum.
You can find the minutes of our meetings on the Google Drive.
If you are interested in joining, contact Sara Pires.
