Afrika-Verein (The German – African Business Association) and the German Health Alliance – GHA invite you in cooperation with Siemens Healthineers to a digital seminar on

“Covid-19 Testing: Possibilities and Challenges in Africa”,
on the 23rd of September 2020, from 2:00 to 3:30 pm.

From screening of certain groups, to sampling, to targeted testing of people showing COVID-19 symptoms – many different COVID-19 testing strategies are widely discussed in science, governance and media. In African countries, these discussions are always led in  light of the availability of and access to testing equipment. Knowing who is infected and who is susceptible to COVID-19 is an important key to conquering this pandemic.

This expert panel will therefore focus on different types of tests, discuss which testing-strategies are supported by which kinds of tests and how equal access to testing facilities for all can be ensured.

The preliminary agenda can be found below. The event will be held in English.
