RG-T4001 : Strengthening Decision-making in the Control of the COVID-19 Pandemic through Genomic Surveillance in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru

Project Status: Implementation

Creation of the Regional Observatory for Genomic Surveillance as a transparent digital platform, collectively constructed, to be used for genomic surveillance. It will function from the standardization of processes and results of the laboratories of the member countries to serve in the analysis and dissemination of the findings. It is expected that with similar reading and interpretation criteria, comparable data can be obtained for decision-making both at the political and technical level; in addition to being a reliable and friendly source of information for the population. The benefits are common to all member states, mainly: political decision-makers, health providers, researchers, and citizens, who may have access to information. It will result in integration and cooperation between countries to control the current pandemic, in the prevention of future outbreaks and in guaranteeing the right to health of the population.
