The current COVID-19 pandemic poses one of the greatest challenges for society worldwide.  In an effort to contribute to the global fight against the disease, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) has launched the “Global Health” Interdisciplinary Platform (PTI), where 330 research groups from different fields collaborate to address some of the main challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic. Scientists have come together with the aim of putting forward short, medium and, mainly, long-term solutions to fight the disease.

The Global Health Platform provides a unique global vision approach that brings together and links multiple aspects of the pandemic: origin, prevention measures, pathophysiology of the disease, containment measures, treatment options, social and economic impact, and finally the need to communicate with society, with a particular focus on education. In addition, to guarantee harmonization of efforts, four crosscutting working groups have been implemented: innovation, information sources, artificial intelligence data and applications, and regional coordination.
