Summary of the Proposed Research:

The International Registry of Healthcare Workers Exposed to COVID-19 Patients (UNITY Global), is an international registry of approximately 10,000 healthcare workers in low- and middle-income countries experiencing increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases and commensurate increased exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus among their healthcare worker (HCW) populations. The aim of this registry is to generate real-world evidence in HCWs to potentially inform recommendations and policies on prevention measures, including prophylactic use of potential drug therapies in HCWs. We aim to share the findings from this registry including occurrence of SARS-CoV-2 infection among healthcare workers caring for COVID-19 patients, in terms of time, geography, healthcare setting, type of healthcare worker. We will also evaluate type of potential prophylactic treatments, by dose and duration, overall, and by country/region/site and to explore the key factors (for example, use of personal protective equipment (PPE), HCW and healthcare facility characteristics, underlying co-morbidities, household history and COVID-19 exposure) modifying the risk of COVID-19 among HCWs.
