At ISC em Casa this Friday (24th), researcher Maurício Barreto, coordinator of Cidacs / Fiocruz, presented the main information about the “Covida Network – Science, Information and Solidarity”, a scientific and multidisciplinary collaboration project focused on the pandemic of Covid-19.

The network’s objective is to produce syntheses of scientific evidence both to support decision-making by health authorities and to inform the general public. It is a joint initiative of Cidacs / Fiocruz and the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA), with support from collaborators from other national and international research institutions.

The seminar was mediated by Glória Teixeira, professor at the Institute of Collective Health (ISC / UFBA). This was the sixth virtual seminar held by ISC em Casa, a project that aims to bring information to the community during the period of social isolation.
