The ongoing COVID-19 outbreak brings into sharp focus how the health of Canadians and the health of people around the world are inextricably linked. Where we share risks, we must also share responsibility. It is in this spirit that CIHR led a Government of Canada rapid research response in partnership with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Canada Research Coordinating Committee (CRCC) through the New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF), the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), and Genome Canada (GC). Together, we are investing nearly $27 million in 47 research projects on medical, social and policy countermeasures for COVID-19.
