Responding to public health emergencies
Elsevier makes essential information related to specific public health emergencies openly available to support researchers, healthcare professionals, policy makers and the public. Resources include large bodies of curated, peer-reviewed research articles for as well as guidelines for healthcare professionals. Recent examples of our resource centers include the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and Monkeypox, with past centers focusing on the Zika and Ebola virus.
