Responding to COVID-19 in Africa: Finding the Balance (Part IV, Calls to Action)   [open pdf - 0B]

From the About This Survey: "The Partnership for Evidence-Based Response to COVID-19 (PERC) is a public-private partnership that supports evidence-based measures to reduce the impact of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] on African Union (AU) Member States. PERC collects social, economic, epidemiological, population movement and security data from Member States to help determine the acceptability, impact and effectiveness of public health and social measures (PHSMs) for COVID-19. This report distills key insights from PERC's fourth survey conducted in September 2021. The survey asked people in 19 AU Member States about their perceptions of PHSMs, vaccines, access to health care, food and income while living through the COVID-19 pandemic. Findings from this survey are compared to those from commensurate surveys conducted in February 2021 and August 2020, alongside the changing epidemiological, political and social contexts, to help identify key findings, policy actions and tools to strengthen outbreak response and preparedness. The PERC survey was conducted by phone with approximately 23,000 people across 19 Member States in five geographical regions between 10 September to 4 October 2021. The weighted national sample size in each of the surveyed Member States for all surveys was 1,200 completed interviews."
