Long COVID: tackling a multifaceted condition requires a multi- disciplinary approach

Feb 15, 2021

The Lancet Infectious Diseases  published the GloPID-R and ISARIC Long COVID Forum Working Group’ letter, describing the content and discussions of the Long COVID Forum which took place on 9-10 December 2020.

This global public forum, organised by ISARIC, GloPID-R and the Long COVID Support (patient support group), was introduced by WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, and brought together people living with long COVID, interdisciplinary researchers, funders, public health experts, and policy makers.
The aim was to identify research gaps to inform urgent long COVID research and support priorities. The core message was the need to expand research beyond hospitalised patients to improve equity in access to research and reduce health inequalities.
