CGD Conversations on COVID-19 and Development: John Nkengasong

Director of Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC), John Nkengasong, joins CGD President Masood Ahmed and CGD Executive Vice President Amanda Glassman to discuss how his organization is helping member states to combat COVID-19. They will discuss the efforts to trace, track, and test; how to introduce mitigation measures on a continent that relies on an informal economy; and how to ensure that resources are not diverted away from other health threats like malaria or tuberculosis.

Conversations on COVID-19 and Development: In this series, CGD President Masood Ahmed discusses the economic and development challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic with policymakers and thought-leaders in the development community. They cover a variety of topics ranging from the adoption of pandemic response strategies for low-income and fragile countries, to how best the international community can help governments, to private sector impact and how DFIs can help.
