The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health has an exciting new fellowship opportunity for JHU graduate students to design an original research project regarding COVID-19 health policy, contribute to a global database, and gain valuable data analysis skills. Selected fellows will receive an award of up to $4,000.
The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked unprecedented public health and social measures (PHSM) by national and local governments, including border restrictions, school closures, mandatory face mask use, and stay-at-home orders. Quantifying the effectiveness of these interventions in reducing disease transmission is key to rational policymaking in response to the current and future pandemics. In order to estimate the effectiveness of these interventions, detailed descriptions of their timelines, scale, and scope are needed. Health Intervention Tracking for COVID-19 (HIT-COVID) is a curated and standardized global database that catalogs the implementation and relaxation of COVID-19 related PHSM. HIT-COVID is led by JHSPH faculty in collaboration with over 200 volunteer contributors across the world.
