Your Covid-19 Risk: Reflections on the Development of the Tool

In the winter of 2020, a global pandemic alarmed the world. In mid-March, a group of researchers recognised the need to develop a tool to support the behaviour changes required to adhere to the new public health recommendations. The group started working on a project that became the “Your Covid-19 Risk” tool (https://your-covid-19-risk.com), which has been used by over 50,000 people globally. In this editorial, Kebede Beyene, Amy Chan, James Green and myself briefly describe the project and the development of the tool, and then offer three viewpoints on important lessons learned from this project and their implications for future work: ‘Agile’ development, risk communication, and cross-cultural development and translation.

The editorial has been published in Health Psychology Bulletin. Please cite as:
