The novelty, speed, scale, and the differing, evolving patterns of the COVID-19 pandemic make it difficult to stay informed. The purpose of the new Dahdaleh COVID-19 Global Health Portal is to provide some clarity in this time of uncertainty, and to allow users to find the information they need.

The Dahdaleh COVID-19 Portal offers:

  • Regular updates on the state of the pandemic prepared by Dr. James Orbinski, a medical doctor, professor and the inaugural director of the Dahdaleh Institute of Global Health Research at York University, and Dahdaleh Fellow Aria Ilyad Ahmad.
  • Credible, intelligible, and useable sources of information.
  • The Dahdaleh Institute’s framework for understanding COVID-19 as a global public health emergency.

The Dahdaleh COVID-19 Global Health Portal can be found at:

An interview with Dr. James Orbinski about the new portal will appear in the April 9 issue of YFile.
