Online Course: COVID-19 Contact Tracing

Online Course: COVID-19 Contact Tracing

The COVID-19 crisis has created an unprecedented need for contact tracing across the country, requiring thousands of people to learn key skills quickly. The job qualifications for contact tracing positions differ throughout the country and the world, with some new positions open to individuals with a high school diploma or equivalent.

   

In this introductory course, students will learn about the science of SARS-CoV-2 , including the infectious period, the clinical presentation of COVID-19, and the evidence for how SARS-CoV-2 is transmitted from person-to-person and why contact tracing can be such an effective public health intervention. Students will learn about how contact tracing is done, including how to build rapport with cases, identify their contacts, and support both cases and their contacts to stop transmission in their communities. The course will also cover several important ethical considerations around contact tracing, isolation, and quarantine. Finally, the course will identify some of the most common barriers to contact tracing efforts -- along with strategies to overcome them.

For a New Coexistence: Peruvian society in times of COVID-19: scenarios, policy proposals and public action

This report is a first response to the initiative of the Ministry of Health (MINSA) to establish a thematic group of Social Sciences made up of expert professionals and academics, whose task is to think about the present hour from the contribution that the social sciences can make to build a national agenda to face the current health crisis.

   

In this sense, the report offers a quick diagnosis and recommendations for policy and public action to face the changing scenarios that will continue to change over the coming months and perhaps years. It is about addressing complex issues about social processes that are in full development and about which our report seeks to formulate some preliminary answers.
