Canada invests $29M to investigate, develop clinical practice guidelines for Post COVID-19 Condition


The Government of Canada announced $29M in funding to address the gaps in scientific understanding of Post COVID-19 Condition (PCC). $20M will be used to create the Long COVID Web research network, which will be co-led by Dr Angela Cheung (University of Toronto and UHN), Dr Simon Décaray (Université de Sherbrooke), Dr Adeera Levin (University of British Columbia), and Dr Piush Mandhane (University of Alberta). $9M will be used by McMaster University’s GRADE Centre and Cochrane Canada to develop, disseminate, and evaluate clinical practice guidelines on PCC. “Today’s announcement of the Long COVID Web research network offers hope—and real solutions to come for those living with post COVID-19 condition,” said federal Minister of Health Jean-Yves Duclos.
