This scoping paper discusses how information on government policy responses to pandemic diseases (e.g. non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) and public health and social measures (PHSMs), and including behavioural rules, testing and contact tracing systems, policies to incentivise vaccination, etc.) have, can, and should be collected, analysed, and incorporated into the broader array of pandemic data (e.g. epidemiological, virological, behavioural, etc.) to build preparedness. It draws on both the academic and policy literature, as well as a series of interviews with policymakers and researchers, as well as a guided stakeholder workshop held in December 2022.
