COVID-19 in Africa: Managing the Outbreak in Primary Care Settings

Maximilian Mancini, St George's, University of London

Enhance your knowledge of COVID-19 patient care and the virus’ impact in Africa

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s been a decrease in primary care attendance noticed across peri-urban settings in Africa.

Alongside patient fears over attending a virus hotspot, it’s known that primary care providers feel unprepared to manage patients with COVID-19 like symptoms.

On this course for primary healthcare providers, you’ll learn about the outbreak of COVID-19 in Africa.

You’ll find out about safe patient management including PPE, infection prevention and control, and the wider health impact of the pandemic.

You’ll also learn how to develop trust in low and middle-income countries that primary care settings are able to meet the international COVID-19 safety requirements.

The aim of this course is to help clinicians contribute to a gradual return to the patient volumes observed before the outbreak in Africa.

The course is designed for primary care providers operating across the African continent, with a particular focus on upper lower to lower-middle-income populations where information sharing can be difficult.

This may include non-physician clinicians (NPCs) known as clinical officers (COs) across selected African countries.

The course will help patient populations in urban and peri-urban areas who have access to primary care facilities that predominantly offer outpatient services (although in some cases these extend to inpatient services).

Whereas specific reference to the wider African healthcare system will be made, this course remains applicable, in principle, to all low and middle-income primary care practices.
