While the spread of COVID-19 across sub-Saharan Africa has been more modest than once feared, the strict lockdown measures and the global economic shock have disrupted livelihoods and stalled efforts against other health scourges in the region such as HIV and TB. During this panel discussion, leading experts will analyze the impacts of the pandemic on health, livelihoods, and the economic outlook in countries across sub-Saharan Africa.
Speakers include Belinda Archibong, assistant professor of economics at Barnard College, Columbia University, Agnes Binagwaho, vice-chancellor of the University of Global Health Equity (UGHE), and Albert G. Zeufack, the World Bank’s chief economist for Africa. The discussion will be moderated by Pascaline Dupas, the King Center faculty director and professor of economics.
