The Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) announced the launch of a central web portal: Combat COVID. The portal is a one-stop resource to help members of the public and doctors find information about different stages of the COVID-19 illness, NIH-supported COVID-19 prevention and treatment clinical trials, and locations to donate plasma.
Every day, we learn more about the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Scientists and doctors working on this disease need your help to develop safe and effective vaccines and medicines for preventing and treating COVID-19 that will help us all. Clinical trials need people from all age groups, races, ethnicities, and backgrounds. On this website, you can find information about clinical trials you can participate in as well as ways to donate blood and plasma that will lead to prevention and treatment breakthroughs to benefit everyone.
According to NIH, the website is useful for:
- People who have never had COVID-19 who may be interested in joining a vaccine or other prevention trial
- People who have COVID-19 and want to participate in a treatment clinical trial
- People who have recovered from COVID-19 who may be interested in donating plasma
- Doctors and other healthcare providers who want more information to guide their patients who have COVID-19
