Dr. Gaya will provide opening remarks and then facilitate a round-table discussion with representatives of the founding partners of the COVID-19 Digital Classroom: the Community Health Academy, CORE Group, Medical Aid Films, TechChange and Translators without Borders.

Round-table participants:

Magnus Conteh, Executive Director, Community Health Academy

You’ll hear how the partners are leveraging digital technologies, curating existing high-quality content and developing a suite of new, medically-reviewed animations and short training courses to ensure every community-based health worker has the information they need to help their own communities wherever in the world they are providing care.
