IGC COVID-19 guidance note: Containment strategies and support for vulnerable households

Policy paper COVID-19

Policymakers across the developing world need to make rapid decisions on their COVID-19 response with little available data or guidance. IGC is working to support these decision-making processes by increasing the supply of data and providing relevant policy guidance.

This policy guidance note provides practical and specific policy guidance, based on the limited evidence available so far, to developing country policymakers and is endorsed by 37 renowned academics in economics and health.

It is a living document that will be updated as new evidence becomes available.
