The Global Information Management, Assessment and Analysis Cell (GIMAC) is a humanitarian multi-stakeholder initiative, proposed jointly by several United Nations and international NGO partners.
GIMAC aims to coordinate, structure, collate, manage and analyse COVID-19 related information; and to provide technical support and services to prioritised countries and global decision making based on a request.
The GIMAC aims to achieve the following objectives:
1. Provide technical support to prioritised countries on needs assessment, analysis and response planning decisions related to the humanitarian impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
2. Support secondary data analysis and an accessible repository for COVID-19 secondary data, assessments, reports and analysis from trusted sources.
3. Link with other global COVID-19 coordination structures and provide decision making support.
