ABOUT THE EVENT
This is the first in a series of panels examining the indirect health effects of COVID-19. This kick-off event, co-hosted by the Center for Global Development and Gates Ventures, will focus on emerging findings from Kenya and Uganda, comparing how these two neighboring countries experienced disruptions to essential health services during the pandemic. The discussion will cover what we know so far about the impacts of COVID-19 on other key health areas and share insights about how ongoing response strategies can protect and promote the broader health needs of the population. Panelists will reflect on the country findings, challenges surrounding the evidence, and opportunities to address gaps and strengthen evidence-informed approaches to pandemic response that take account of health impacts beyond those directly caused by emerging pathogens, including the effectiveness of mitigation methods besides lockdowns.
