Start Date: 01 May 2020
End Date: 31 March 2021
Regions: Africa
Keywords: Covid-19, pandemic, policy implementation, prevention control


This pilot project will inventory examples of public health and community-based interventions for prevention, screening, mitigation, control and treatment in lower and lower-middle income countries on COVID-19. We will collect data in English and French on local innovations through crowd-sourcing techniques and from case studies on government policy measures in three Francophone West African countries. The study will asses interventions implemented in Sub-Saharan Africa to provide a snapshot of innovations accompanied by in-depth analysisto inform policy adaptation. Methodologically, the project will pilot a networked, open approach to collect, collate, and circulate innovations that profile African expertise in health.

You can access the survey online in English or in French
