COVID-19 Best Practices - AIOT Joint Statement

The outbreak of a novel coronavirus, referred to as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) or coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) has rapidly become a global public health threat, endangering the health and well-being of all people, but especially vulnerable populations. The pandemic has also precipitated social disruption, exceptional health-care utilization, and economic instability worldwide. Limiting further spread of COVID-19 has become the singular focus, with unprecedented international collaboration and rapid dissemination of emerging scientific evidence. The Alliance of International Organizations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (AIOT) agreed on a number of over-arching best practices to guide our international members. AIOT recommends global research collaborations to maximize efficiency and existing networks during COVID-19 to determine impacts of the pandemic on orthopaedic and trauma care worldwide.

This statement does not replace those of member organizations, rather it provides a unification of key recommendations.
