About The Coronavirus Pandemic Project
The Coronavirus Pandemic Project is an ambitious multi-year project motivated by the belief that citizens engaged with various levels of government, the medical system, as well as private industry, academic institutions, and social agencies, supported by meaningful information and tools, can have a great impact on difficult, complex challenges facing our nation. The Coronavirus Pandemic Project recognizes that a multi-stakeholder, comprehensive public health approach to combating the Coronavirus Pandemic is crucial. It is up to all of us to prevent and reduce the impact of the pandemic. Our approach recognizes that any meaningful solution must address the complexity of The Coronavirus Pandemic, including prevention, mitigation, and treatment of the virus as well as the social, political and economic consequences.
More specifically, The Coronavirus Pandemic Project is an experiment that engages with fellow citizens and stakeholders to achieve the following:
By June 2020, every individual who experiences symptoms of the Coronavirus infection has access to and is able to receive evidence-based, best practice informed treatment that improves their well-being in outcomes that matter for them.
By July 2020 there are no reported deaths of Coronavirus infection reported in the US.
By March 2020 public health driven considerations are driving the response to the Coronavirus viral infection related then political consideration.
By July 2021 a treatment, as well as prevention for the virus, is available to all individuals who have access to affordable, evidence-based treatment.
