How to navigate the flood of evidence on COVID-19 and come back to the shore with clear, plain-language answers? This is the problem that the Epistemonikos Foundation and Salud con Lupa set out to solve over a year ago. Our solution is Scientifically Proven, a dashboard that ranks treatments against COVID-19 according to their appropriateness, using the latest and best scientific evidence.
We are proud to be nominated for the 2021 edition of the prestigious “Premio Gabo” award in the Innovation category. This is the most important recognition received by journalism projects in Spanish and Portuguese, which this year named 40 nominees, 10 in each category -Innovation, Text, Coverage, and Image- selected between more than 1,500 participants. The “Premio Gabo” will be awarded on November 18, 2021, in a virtual ceremony.
The Gabo Foundation was created by the renowned Colombian author and Nobel Prize Winner Gabriel García Márquez. They also host the “Gabo Festival”, which this year will take place from November 15 to November 20 and will run a comprehensive programme that includes workshops, talks and lectures directed to journalists and editors from the Latin American media.
Scientifically Proven has just completed one year of life, and is updated every week (with no interruptions) in order to help readers stay well informed, and to provide social and political actors, policymakers, health professionals, and anyone making health decisions, with a safe, exhaustive and friendly entry point into the evidence they need. The dashboard is designed for a global audience and is available in Spanish, Portuguese, and English
