About the Consortium

As SARS-CoV-2 continues to test human resolve by overwhelming health systems and governments, we need to do our part.

The Covid19 Consortium brings together scientists, researchers, technologists, global corporations, philanthropies and startups—to collaboratively and expeditiously build and deploy technology solutions to help fight the pandemic.

Bringing partners across the board will be critical to formulating rapid and effective responses to emerging needs. To focus on localised efforts and to track the effectiveness of interventions, this coalition seeks to:
 
  • Engage a diverse set of individuals and organizations (epidemiological modelers, AI & data scientists, engineers, data sources, and data management and governance experts) to seamlessly work together.
  • Enable data, models, and dashboards sourced from members to be combined in order to produce improved models, insights and dashboards.
  • Support the needs of public authorities to guide solution development, and to deliver actionable insights and tools.
  • Maintain data governance policy and standards in line with governing laws and industry best practices towards ensuring the observance and protection of privacy and ethics.
