Hi all

WHO (Global and AFRO), WONCA Africa and AfroPHC are planning a weekly webinar on COVID-19 to get an update on the situation, explore PHC preparedness in Africa and to respond to questions. This will be at 1pm Central European Time on Fridays with the first webinar this Friday, 20th March.

Each webinar will focus on different parts and countries in Africa. The focus this Friday is Anglophone Africa. It will be Francophone Africa next week. We will elaborate the focus for each weeks webinar on the websites and as we proceed.

Please circulate the link to this news post to everyone in primary care in Africa. We really hope to reach to all family doctors and PHC team members on the frontline, to support each other and ensure their voice is heard at the highest level.
