COVID-Local and the Frontline Guide are a joint project of the Global Biological Policy Program at the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), the Center for Global Development, and the Georgetown University Center for Global Health Science and Security, in collaboration with Talus Analytics. The team is comprised of experienced experts in disease outbreak as well as former public health officials, and the tools were developed in response to calls from local governments for more information on how to protect their communities.

ANALYSIS AND MAPPING OF POLICIES

Helping policy makers visualize the impact of policies in the COVID response

Helping local leaders assess the impact of COVID-19 response plans and policies

The COVID Analysis and Mapping of Policies (AMP) visualization tool is a comprehensive database of policies and plans to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Decision-makers can use COVID AMP’s user-friendly interface to easily identify effective policies and plans to reduce the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID AMP is part of the COVID-Local suite of free resources developed for local decision-makers who are working to keep their communities safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID AMP library includes policies and plans published by subnational governments or private and non-profit organizations, in addition to those released by national governments.
