Smart Africa’s call for proposals for a Coordinated African Response to the COVID-19 pandemic closes on the 2nd of April 2020 at 5pm.
You still have time to get your proposal in if you haven’t yet. This is an incredible time for Africa to come together and battle this pandemic.
COVID-19 has reached 42 African countries, Africa has yet relatively less been affected by this deadly epidemic compared to other continents, with 1,200 cases and 37 deaths. However, recent data from other countries show that numbers can grow exponentially in a relatively short amount of time.
Smart Africa is determined to face the COVID-19 pandemic in #Africa through a coordinated response for the continent. In order to meet this crisis by its magnitude and its impact on society, the Smart Africa Secretariat seeks to support digital health services projects that aim at improving and accelerating the African governments response to the challenges of the #Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This call for proposals calls upon enterprises with capabilities to address:
• Assess individual risk and guide decision making;
• Assist African populations in finding nearby testing sites;
• Provide reliable updates and alerts from public health authorities;
• Report on community status;
• Track and report transmissions.
