Mitigating the Impact of COVID-19: Rapid data collection, iterative policy assessment, scale up of effective policy
COVID-19 has had a catastrophic impact across developed economies, shutting down cities, overloading the health infrastructure, and collapsing the global economy. Y-RISE in collaboration with Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) and International Growth Center (IGC) is supporting the governments of Bangladesh, Nepal, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone to generate an evidence-based policy response that helps contain the health and economic devastation of COVID-19.
