OVERVIEW OF EXPERTISE IN RELATION TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK AND IMPACT

I am a member of the WHO Emergency Committee for COVID-19. During the SARS outbreak, I led the first WHO Mission into China to seek the origin of SARS, and subsequently, working at WHO, I established the laboratory network for confirmatory testing for SARS , and a WHO SARS research network. I was also a founding member of the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network of WHO., and of the Asia Pacific Strategy for Emerging Infectious Diseases of the Western Pacific Regional Office of WHO.

COVID-19 Expert Database

The COVID-19 Expert Database has been created to provide a mechanism for governments, the business sector, the research sector, and other decision-makers to easily access the expertise they need to inform their decision making.


Australia’s ability to navigate this fast-changing environment and to recover from it needs inputs from a range of researchers and other experts. All fields of expertise including: science, technology, engineering, mathematics, health, humanities, arts, and social science are needed.


If you have expertise that can contribute to the national and global effort to tackle and recover from COVID-19 and its scientific, health, social, cultural and economic implications, please register here.
