HITAP is now a member of the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN), which is a network of “250 technical institutions and networks globally that respond to acute public health events with the deployment of staff and resources to affected countries”, coordinated by WHO. As part of this collaboration, HITAP and NUS are conducting a study on assessing the trade-offs in efficiency and equity of contact tracing for COVID-19, using a Discrete Choice Experiment (DCE). As part of this initiative, a framework will be developed for contact tracing that can be applied to LMICs in both Asia and Africa.
