PAMJ Special issue on COVID - 19 in Africa

The current COVID-19 pandemic has challenged even health systems that have traditionally been considered has resilient. From China through Europe, the Americas and Africa, the COVID-19 in progressing, unabated despite important efforts in place. Although Africa has been hit late compared to other continents, the World Health Organization, through its Director-General, and other global health experts warned African countries to prepare for the worst. Some experts have voiced their concerns about the effectiveness of these measures in curbing the expanding pandemic and their likely medium to long terms impact on African population. This special issue scans the early COVID-19 response landscape in Africa and invites work and reflections regarding: the overall preparedness and response in African countries; COVID-19 Epidemiology in Africa; local experiences in case management including challenges, ongoing clinical trials and innovations and coping strategies; Health system, health economics and socio-anthropological drivers of the disease and overall impact of the pandemic on all aspects of life in Africa
