Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was first detected in Wuhan city, China in December 2019 and on 11 March 2020, the WHO Director General declared COVID-19 a pandemic.

Current available evidence is that the COVID-19 virus is transmitted between people through close contact and droplets. People most at risk of infection are those who are in contact with a COVID-19 patient and/or who care for COVID-19 patients. This inevitably places healthcare workers at an increased risk of infection.

As part of our ethically approved COVID-19 Open Cohort Study, we are doing a survey to determine the risks to COVID-19 infection in the line of duty faced by healthcare workers (HCWS) globally, and challenges to their protection during the pandemic.

This survey is only meant for research purposes. We hope to rapidly share the outputs of this survey very objectively with various audiences globally such as Governments, Ministries of Health, Civil Society, Academia and Grantors.

Participation in this study is completely voluntary and your responses will be strictly confidential. Data from this research will be reported only in the aggregate. Your information will remain confidential.
