Hi all, I am also concerned about speed of capacity building. We are making content from profs of UCL, Hopkins and more available for free and also offering free government-level capacity building academies. If you would like one, just contact me at stefan_wisbauer@post.harvard.edu. Best, Stefan

“Growth per country” likely to correlate a lot with testing, so would be good to add that to analysis

why is it that there is a lot of focus in treatment rooms(biomedical intervention) as opposed to primary healthcare where focus is on prevention which can yield higher returns?

Hi, I am from the AdvocacyNetworkAfrica, we are dedicated to eradicating TB. Most of our beneficiaries live in one room houses. How best can we talk about "social-distancing" when their daily living spaces are these one rooms and perhaps the roadsides where they are no longer allowed to relate. Should we talk of hand washing or both bodily/space hygiene? What effective social distancing messaging should be common and cuts across?

Testing has remained a major challenge in Africa. A symptomatic patients was rejected in rejected in some center, like, Ilorin in Nigeria.can we look at another category of isolation for highly suspected symptomatic patients with or without empirical treatment pending confirmation. these categories of patients were rejected causing further spread of the disease and death of some of these patients.We need to domesticate the guidelines for Africa. Thanks
