The scale and speed of the COVID-19 pandemic represents an unprecedented scenario in the era of modern medicine. Our knowledge, the available data, and current resources are changing constantly.

COVIDprotocols.org was launched by a team from Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) in March, 2020 to create open access adaptable protocols for the management of COVID19 patients, based on BWH guidelines and multidisciplinary committee discussions. In spring of 2020, Partners In Health (PIH) also published the guides for COVID-19, focused on COVID-19 care in resource-limited settings.

In December, 2020, COVIDprotocols.org partnered with UCSF’s Institute for Global Health Sciences and Partners in Health (PIH) to combine the best content from UCSF’s USAID-STAR sponsored OpenCriticalCare.org and the PIH COVID19 Guides to create COVIDprotocols.org v2.0. This updated resource for COVID-19 includes content relevant to all practice settings and presents information in ways to facilitate easier utilization in learning and practice. The BWH-specific protocols still exist and are available at BWH.covidprotocols.org.

Team and ProcessCopy Link!

We are a team of over 200 healthcare workers and scientists from different disciplines, institutions and countries. Each section has at least one editor, multiple contributors, and several senior advisors. A multidisciplinary committee meets every other week to incorporate new information from clinical experience, user feedback, and newly published literature.

  • The website and app were produced in partnership with Upstatement.
  • Content on facility infrastructure was produced in partnership with Build Health International, a non-profit organization serving the healthcare needs of the poor by building high-quality health infrastructure in low-resource settings.
