CUGH Webinar - The Impact of COVID-19 in Africa & Latin America: Challenges & Opportunities

12 May 2020


Countries in Africa and Latin America are particularly vulnerable to a pandemic. The challenges they face and the opportunities that exist to strengthen health systems in these regions receive too little attention. The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a bright light on challenges low resource communities face, but this moment also presents an opportunity to address these gaps to not only prevent pandemics but address a broader range of public health challenges including noncommunicable diseases. This webinar brings together leaders from these regions who will discuss challenges these regions face and also what can be done to address them.

Nelson Torto from The African Association of Sciences (AAS), Lillian Dudley from Stellenbosch University, and Patricia Garcia, Former Minister of Health, Peru were moderated by Keith Martin, Executive Director of CUGH in this webinar.


Webinar date: 12 May 2020
