Online Course

Measuring and Maximizing Impact of COVID-19 Contact Tracing

Johns Hopkins University via Coursera

Overview

This course aims to provide managers and developers of contact tracing programs guidance on the most important indicators of performance of a contact tracing program, and a tool that can be used to project the likely impact of improvements in specific indicators. Students who complete the course will be proficient in using the Contact Tracing Evaluation and Strategic Support Application (ConTESSA) to estimate the impact of their contact tracing program on transmission and strategizing about how to increase their program’s impact. A secondary audience for the course will be decision makers interested in knowing more about the characteristics of effective contact tracing programs, and strategies to improve.

The course is designed for individuals who are already leading contact tracing programs who have significant experience with epidemiology and public health. We strongly recommend completing this course on a laptop or a desktop rather than a phone as you’ll need to complete worksheets and open the course and the application simultaneously.

    Siyabonga completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    I must say before this course I knew little about the Corona Virus, now I am more enlightened and knowable about how to measure and maximise impact of the virus in contact tracing.
