Using hotlines to collect data on COVID-19

COVID-19 put a spotlight on the need to prepare for pandemics. Ending Pandemics has long been partnering with communities and governments to report unusual events in humans, animals, and the environment– most recently, Ending Pandemics developed a toll-free hotline in Cambodia to collect information on the spread of COVID-19. While gender is not a primary focus, hotlines can have the ability to collect demographic data on those potentially infected by the virus.
