The Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy Responds to the COVID-19 Crisis
The Duke-Margolis Center, faculty and researchers from Duke University and Duke Health System, and leaders from across the health care and health policy landscape are actively working together to advance recommendations for collectively addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. The Center will be releasing new working papers, holding informational webinars, and centralizing useful resources for the policy community in the coming days and weeks. These resources will be centralized here and updated regularly.
COVID-19 Working Papers
The Center is writing a series of working policy papers in conjunction with national experts, which will be updated as new recommendations are formulated. The first paper, which recommended formation of Federal task forces to coordinate diagnostic and pharmaceutical development, can be found here. A follow-up paper with more detailed recommendations on the near-term needs associated with the development of and ready access to diagnostic testing capabilities, can be found here. Additional papers are immediately forthcoming.
As the Center releases new policy recommendations, and as more progress is made in the response to the pandemic, a series of webinars will shed light on remaining challenges and promote potential solutions. The first webinar, focused on diagnostic testing capabilities, will be held from 12:30-2:30 ET on Tuesday, March 31, 2020. The recording can be viewed here.
