This series of COVID-19 micro briefings are produced by the Glasgow Centre for Population Health and Policy Scotland and written in collaboration with expert partner agencies.
They are intended to support a range of partners and decision-makers by providing concise, accessible overviews of current evidence about how the pandemic has shaped life, health and wellbeing in Glasgow and beyond, and the implications for inequalities, policy, and practice in the recovery period.
These high-level briefings also consider future directions for research. Collaborating with partner agencies facilitates sharing both academic and practice expertise directly to policymakers and the public.
These micro briefings will also inform and support the work of Glasgow’s Social Recovery Taskforce.
The role of the Taskforce is to provide leadership, direction, and to set out a shared vision that will drive the city’s response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in relation to a broad range of themes that impact city’s people. Policy Scotland and the Glasgow Centre for Population Health (GCPH) lead the Taskforce’s Academic Advisory Group.
