New Project on Life with Corona in Africa

A new project exploring how African citizens respond to and cope with the pandemic has been launched at ISDC. Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Life with Corona in Africa project will run until December 2021 and will build on the unique Life with Corona online survey to advance understanding of how the pandemic is affecting health, food, work, gender and social cohesion outcomes in order to better prepare communities and governments to respond to the challenges ahead as the pandemic spreads across the continent. The LwC-Africa project will collect four quarterly repeated cross-sectional phone- based surveys over 12 months. The findings of this project will advance our understanding of the special challenges of coping with Corona in low income and fragile settings and will contribute to better policies and aid programmes to support the most vulnerable countries in Africa.
