SRCD Signs on to Data Coalition's Letter Regarding Data on COVID-19 in the United States
SRCD joined 21 U.S. scientific organizations in a letter to the U.S. Congress requesting them to prioritize the need for valid, reliable data about the challenges facing the United States in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. The letter suggests three ways to provide rapid prioritization of data to support decision-makers, many of which align with or are complementary to the Evidence Commission’s recommendations, including:
- Enable Improved Privacy-Protected Data Sharing for Research;
- Prioritize Funding for Critical Needs in the Evidence Ecosystem; and
- Promote Transparency for Supplemental COVID-19 Spending.
