The Centre for Macau Studies of the University of Macau joined an international collaboration led by Vrije University in the Netherlands and their World Health Organization Collaborating Center to study the psychosocial effects of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.

The study will be conducted in 16 countries, representing all regions of the globe, with 16 global university partners, including the University of Macau, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Freie Universität Berlin, Stellenbosch University, the Università di Verona, and Yale University. The Centre for Macau Studies was involved in the design of the survey and will coordinate the data collection effort in Macau and the region.

This study will be longitudinal and conducted over the course of one year and will enable the scientific consortium to investigate the long-term mental health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide. The aim of the research is to provide key policy guidance to strengthen existing health services to better address public mental health, and deepen our collective knowledge on how populations respond to adversity and remain resilient despite exposure to stress and disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
