Given the weak health system capacity in Africa, the projected impact of Coronavirus, a pandemic that has already claimed tens of thousands of lives, is concerning. While social distancing and handwashing have been recommended measures, misinformation is rife. Prevention is the most effective offensive we can take against this epidemic.
Building on the power of community, we worked on a crowdsourced project to translate evidence-based preventive guidelines primarily from the World Health Organization, into several African languages. The material you see below is a product of dedicated work from volunteers from various countries in Africa working to make these translations accessible, informative and easy to understand. Take a moment to see their names and social media links and tell them thank you!
We will be disseminating these resources via grassroots organizations, but we also hope that you will help us do this as well. So download, and share away!
With gratitude to our team of contributors,
From the EAF core team: Ebele Mogo, Dara Oloyede, Cyril Tata, Tola Olufemi, Aghedo Osazemen, Anthony Lerno, Lucy Chu.
