Want to have an insight on how three senior researchers have led international research and policy response during the COVID-19 pandemic in Africa?
It has been almost two years since the outbreak of the SARS-COV-2 Viral pandemic. Part of the response to this pandemic has been research to inform policy and management options. Conducting research during epidemics is riddled with coordination and implementation challenges, and several African institutions have rich experiences that we can glean and learn from.
This webinar brings togethern three experts in the field from across Africa to share their experiences to learn how to navigate the associated bottlenecks and successfully coordinate and implement high-quality studies during epidemics in resource-limited settings.
