The objective of this project was to identify gaps and challenges in preventing and responding to MOA in Canada, more specifically, gaps and challenges that were exposed or exacerbated during the pandemic. This project undertook the following 2 strategies to meet this objective:

  1. a comprehensive review of the literature focusing on MOA prevention and response during the pandemic
  2. a survey of stakeholders across Canada directly involved in MOA prevention or response throughout the pandemic

Based on the findings synthesized across the comprehensive literature review and stakeholder survey, a set of recommended future directions are provided. These future direction recommendations represent key opportunities and actionable steps to address the identified gaps and challenges in preventing and responding to MOA that were exposed during the pandemic.
