COVID-19 is a global problem, but there is no one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why IDRC is working with African partners to fund research designed to mitigate the impact of the pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa and to inform international responses.
On behalf of all partners — the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Genome Canada , the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and the Canada Research Coordinating Committee (CRCC) — we would like to express our sincere gratitude to Canada’s research community for mobilizing so quickly in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
As more countries begin to deal with COVID-19 outbreaks, the Government of Canada is investing in Canadian researchers to learn more about this novel coronavirus and to develop tools and resources to combat it.
