Cochrane Convenes will be organised into a series of invitation-only thematic roundtables, held 5-7 October. Key messages and recommendations from the roundtables will be shared with participants and revised 8-11 October and a draft will be presented to the advisory and steering group members 12 October. The final recommendations wil be shared in an open session on 14 October.
Invitees will be thought leaders who have been visible in the COVID-19 response on both the supply and demand sides of health evidence. They will include representatives of global organizations, national governments, funders, researchers and academia, civil society (including patient groups) and the media and be from a range of geographic regions.
While the roundtable sessions will be invite-only, there will be many other ways for those that are interested to participate.
