The Pandemic Recovery Survey aims to study the impacts of COVID-19 across the world and to assist public health officials in focusing their efforts to recover from the pandemic and allocate resources. It includes questions about people’s access to health information, support, and care, their confidence in vaccines, household financial and food (in)security as well as their socio-demographic characteristics. People from 21 countries around the globe are invited to participate via Facebook.

The survey is conducted by the University of Maryland (UMD) and Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU) in collaboration with the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington and Meta Platforms, Inc.
