4. Challenges with implementing COVID-19 guidelines in resource-limited settings
This group will focus on challenges with implementing guidelines for COVID-19 preventions and control, particularly in resource-limited settings.
These include inadequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), access to water for washing hands, etc.
They will consider the unintended consequences of these measures and guidelines including health, social and economic impacts and examine how countries can and have tailored these guidelines to fit their needs/setting.
The group’s work is focused on Nigeria and South Africa, comparing the chronology of the outbreak response and the challenges if implementation.
