ISE’s response to the COVID-19 Pandemics
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is evolving very rapidly. People with endocrine conditions, particularly diabetes are very exposed to COVID-19. As the diseases progresses, our health systems in rich and poor countries are under pressure. COVID-19 does not discriminate and will aggravate inequalities within societies, with vulnerable groups likely to suffer the most.
As a global society, ISE’s vision is to ensure optimal lifelong health for people living with endocrine conditions. We can do that together as a united endocrine community. As this is a novel disease with very few guidelines and scientific materials available, we propose to start sharing information, guidance and good practice to help each other. We would like to do this together with you, in collaboration with our members, partners and other sister societies.
A number of prominent health actors such as the NEMJ and WHO have already produced and made available resources.
Other societies, national, regional and international, have started similar collection and curation exercises and it is all in our best interest to share it as widest as possible.
We have a space on our Education Hub, where we will gather and structure the information as best as possible. Please check here.
Therefore, we encourage you to share resources and tools to help our network.
Please submit your resources via this form or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any useful materials that you can send us.
Thank you very much for your mobilization!
