Hello everyone,
Here, I extend an invitation to a LINA Webinar this Wednesday, July 15th 2020, 10:00-11:30 am PDT (Vancouver) / 6:00-7:30 pm WAT (Brazzaville) / 7:00-8:30 pm CAT (Gaborone, Durban, Kigali).
This webinar series highlights African responses to COVID-19 across different sectors. In this session, we aim to highlight the resilience of Africa’s health care systems and ways in which other pandemics have prepared many African nations for effective management of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will hear from high-level leaders from various nations and regions in the continent to learn about the current state of health status and health care systems in Africa. Finally, we will explore new and emerging lessons and opportunities for the future.

Please find the attached poster.
Best Regards,
