The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19),
caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).
Africa is home to 1,216 milliard people as of this day. This pandemic will present some challenges in the present and the near future.
Our goal is to work on some tackling some of them.
Surpass the Curve
FACT: COVID-19 virus is already present in Africa and it is spreading.
What we CAN do is prepare and learn from those who have experienced the wave and
adopt to cultural and environmental realities across the continent.
At a global level
Because COVID19 has infected large populations in Europe and USA,
medical supplies that are necessary for doctors who will be in contact with COVID19 patients and help citizen
protect themselves are short in availability. They are NOT possible to produce and import from countries that normally supplied them.Therefore,
solutions will be necessary to prevent the virus from spreading and to protect our communities and families.
Mobilize national and local actors that can provide solutions
Adopt creative measures to utilize the resources available for that which will become scarce : Personal protective equipment (PPE)
Provide clear consistent product blueprint to makers to ensure quality and consistency
Create connected communication channels between production and demand
We are Decentralized and Organized - Locally applied.
If you would like to get involved in the project join the Innovate for Africa Telegram group
We are looking for medical professionals, scientists, funding managers, communicators, individuals with knowledge of local landscapes in different countries
across the continent and open to any positive willingness to be part of the collective to help.
