Individuals and organizations battling the COVID-19 pandemic have an urgent need to mobilize knowledge and rapidly get it into the hands of decision makers and other stakeholders. Members of the public need clear, easy-to-understand messages communicated to them about the activities and initiatives underway.

In response to the current situation, NIVA has decided to donate its specialized capacity and expertise to scientists, public health officials and other persons conducting or facilitating research to combat the virus and the disease it causes. This includes access to all of our writing, editing, science and risk communication, knowledge mobilization, graphic design, and data visualization services free of charge.

We can help you maximize the impact of related communications for every audience, on any aspect of COVID-19. This could include elements such as:

  • How it is spreading
  • How it can be stopped
  • How to treat its victims
  • How to manage the emergency
  • How to help society and the economy recover once things are under control

Over the past 40 years, NIVA has provided support for over 1200 communication projects. We have gained deep insight from significant experience with health-related communications including research reports, emergency preparedness and management planning, as well as a broad spectrum of products designed to engage internal, stakeholder and public audiences. Here is a list of some of our most relevant projects:
