Indicators were designed to rank how effective a country’s leadership is and how prepared its health systems are in tackling the pandemic.

The UAE has been ranked among the top 10 countries with the best leadership response in the time of the global Covid-19 crisis, according to a new index.

Called the Global Response to Infectious Diseases (GRID) index, the indicators were designed to rank how efficient and effective a country’s leadership is and how prepared its health systems are in tackling the pandemic.

The results were recently published in a paper titled ‘GRID Index: Tracking the Global Leadership Response in the COVID-19 Crisis’ by the Institute of Certified Management Accountants (Australia).

New Zealand topped the index, and apart from the UAE, the other countries that did well were Australia, Singapore, Iceland, Finland, Norway, Canada, South Korea, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Japan and Taiwan.

Nations that ranked low in leadership response were India, Russia, China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Brazil, and the US.

Dr Chris D’Souza, principal developer of the GRID index, observed that “in times of crisis, good leaders rally to nurture and protect their flock”.

“Great leaders with vision go beyond their own national boundaries and unite the world fostering global partnerships to work towards the common good,” Dr D’Souza said.
