The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the fore the need to address structural inequalities in healthcare access. Analysis projects several pathways by which government efforts to reduce the spread of the disease will affect health systems in Africa.
This webinar will bring together global experts from civil society organizations, the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC), the African Development Bank and the African Union Economic Council for Social and Cultural Affairs, to critically examine the impact of COVID-19 on the health systems in Africa, with a view to identifying ways that African countries can build more resilient, people-centered and inclusive health systems post-pandemic.
