RECOVERY was established in March as a randomised clinical trial to test a range of potential drugs for COVID-19, including hydroxycholoroquine. The trial has proceeded at unprecedented speed, enrolling over 11,000 patients from 175 NHS hospitals in the UK. The chief investigators have concluded that there is no beneficial effect of hydroxychloroquine in patients hospitalised with COVID-19.
The MSc in Modelling for Global Health is a full-time one-year taught programme that provides interdisciplinary content on modelling, health evidence to inform the modelling, and policy processes to inform decisions. Week-long modules are delivered through a mix of interactive practical sessions and lectures in person at Oxford. Demand for a skilled workforce in this field is on the rise and there is great potential for mathematical and economic modelling to help guide policy for national health systems and international policymaking.
