We are always looking for new resources. If you have suitable material, please send it to us so we can upload it onto the website. This can be:

  • social science journal articles, reports, and briefs e.g. qualitative description and analysis of the social dimensions and control of epidemic prone diseases, or of the context where an epidemic is occurring
  • social science toolkits or methods e.g. for rapid data collection during epidemics
  • blogs with a social science or contextual component.

Resources and evidence are organised into 8 themes:

  • emergence and origins
  • transmission and spread
  • identifying cases and surveillance
  • reducing spread
  • engagement and communication
  • local sources of care and advice
  • clinical research
  • recovery
