This paper highlights three aspects that the global scientific community can use to safeguard research during crises such as the one caused by the outbreak of COVID-19. Along with recommending positioning the research within the crisis context and moving beyond virtual modes, the researchers demonstrate that a community engagement and involvement (CEI) approach which is established and already embedded into a study, remains feasible and valuable for global health research programmes during times of crisis. The researchers make their case using the example of the multi-country health research programme ECLIPSE in Sri Lanka.
