UNCOVER | Applied Evidence Synthesis

Request a Review

UNCOVER exists to provide high-quality public health evidence synthesis in answer to the real and urgent questions that decision-makers are grappling with, in response to COVID-19 and its consequences.

UNCOVER has produced rapid reviews and summaries on a wide range of topics related to COVID-19, all of which are publicly available on the Output pages of this site, for use by a wide range of decision-makers, including the World Health Organisation, Scottish and UK Government Advisory Committees, the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisations (JCVI), Edinburgh City Council, Public Health Scotland and others. We have worked together with international partners including the South African Medical Research Council and COVID-END, and with academic colleagues within and beyond the University of Edinburgh. We also maintain a Register of Reviews, which provides an up-to-date overview of the latest COVID-19 evidence syntheses from around the world, which is publicly available and used by organisations around the world.

Request our work

UNCOVER welcomes approaches from organisations who want to use the best-available public health evidence on COVID-19 and its consequences, in order to inform their decisions. The majority of our work to date has been for organisations with a role in setting public policy, but we also welcome approaches from organisations working at a more local scale, including local government and third sector organisations; as well as from organisations with a national or international perspective. If you have a review question which you would like to explore further with us, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
