In these times of uncertainty it has never been more important to share our experiences and learnings. In this first event of the series, we’ll be bringing together experts working on the frontline to share their thoughts around best practice, review current guidelines in their respective countries and share ways in which those who are ahead have navigated the pandemic so far.
As these doctors take centre stage, we will hear what challenges they have faced, how these have been overcome and explore what lies ahead. We shall dissect strategies that they have employed in their respective hospitals and understand what their respective governments have done to combat COVID-19
Key Discussion Points:
- The steps individual doctors have taken to prepare for COVID-19
- Institutional capacity and readiness for COVID-19
- Testing and management of the patients
- Inter-regional response (incl. overview of government response [policies and enabling environment] and potential policy gaps)
The COVID-19 Exchange
COVID-19 has taken the world by storm. The virus has infected millions, thousands have died and there is much to learn, unlearn and learn again. With many countries currently enduring different phases of the pandemic, sharing experiences has already proved beneficial and coming together has never been more important.
That’s why Medixus and Bobab have teamed up to deliver a series of webinars - The COVID-19 Exchange - focused on sharing COVID-19 learnings and best practice. Over the course of four online events, we’ll be bringing together healthcare professionals, scientists and policy makers from Africa and around the world to connect, share and collaborate.
