K4D COVID-19 Resource Hub

The COVID-19 Resource Hub brings together learning across UK Government departments to support their fight against COVID-19 and its consequences.

This report provides an overview of the extensive work that K4D has done on the impacts of COVID-19 in low- and middle- income countries. As well as this, there are a number of evidence summaries and resources that have been produced throughout the pandemic.

K4D COVID-19 Evidence Summaries

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, K4D has been publishing  Evidence Summaries to signpost UK Government departments to the latest relevant evidence and discourse on COVID-19 to inform and support their response. These began in March 2020, and the Humanitarian Evidence and Discourse Summaries are ongoing.

Ongoing Summaries

  • Humanitarian Evidence and Discourse Summaries: K4D Humanitarian Evidence and Discourse Summaries cover a range of emerging evidence across a broader scope including but not limited to COVID-19-focussed resources. They can be accessed here.
