COVID-19 Information for the International Brain Tumour Community

The International Brain Tumour Alliance (IBTA) has assembled a list of COVID-19 links to information for our global community of patients, caregivers, healthcare and allied healthcare professionals and others.  We have grouped these links into various categories: (1) featured links, (2) global links, (3) links to information provided by brain tumour patient and caregiver charities and not for profits, (4) links to information from neuro-oncology societies, (5) free journal access to COVID-19 information, (6) information from pan-European organisations, (7) miscellaneous, (8) Covid-19 and cancer information, (9) pharmaceutical industry, and (10) information for individual countries.

In light of the growing global COVID-19 crisis, now more than ever, it is vital that accurate, up-to-date information is available to brain tumour patients, their families, caregivers and healthcare professionals.

We will endeavour to keep this page updated as more information becomes available but if you know of other reliable, accurate and up-to-date infomation for our community with regard to the COVID-19 situation, please do let us know by contacting kathy@theibta.org

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt thanks to all of the courageous medical personnel who are today on the front line of caring for people who have been diagnosed with COVID-19.  Given the scale and impact of this current pandemic, their selfless bravery in treating these patients – at great risk to their own health – is nothing short of heroic.
