Find trusted sources of information, guidance on protective measures for health care workers and health care facilities, as well as information about our urgent response to this public health emergency.
Global health experts are increasingly coming to the same conclusion: the novel coronavirus 2019 will circle the globe. It has now reached Sub-Saharan Africa. The under-resourced and unprepared national health systems of many African countries will have difficulty detecting its presence and are not equipped to respond.
Those of us who have experience in responding to disease outbreaks know that every moment of lead time to prepare is precious, not to be squandered. That is why IMA World Health and our partners intend to do our part to stop COVID-19 from taking hold on the continent, where it could have devastating impacts on the economies, trade, and people of Africa.
