This webinar will bring together a high-level panel comprised of U.S. Ambassador to the African Union (AU) Jessye Lapenn, AU Commissioner for Social Affairs Amira Elfadil, and head of the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) Dr. John Nkengasong to discuss the current and future predicted impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the African continent.
