The political and public health response to the pandemic has varied across East Africa, though Covid-19 is not restricted by national borders: prospects for preventing future infection spikes are directly linked to the capability of all nations to source, finance and deploy the crucial personnel, PPE and vaccine necessary to contain then coexist with the virus.

Join Duarte Pedreira (Head of Emerging & Frontier Markets, Crown Agents Bank; Board Member, ITFA), Will Garton-Jones (Business Development Director, Paycode), Jelena Madir (Director of Legal & General Counsel, Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance), Grace Murage (Regional FI Head, Banks & DFIs, East & Southern Africa, Rand Merchant Bank (RMB)), and David Pitts (Senior Advisor, International Development Organisations, Crown Agents Bank) as they share perspectives on the progress made in suppressing the pandemic across the region, outline near-term challenges and next steps, and assess the role that can be played by private and public finance sectors, fintech, and mobile payments in assuring the provision and deployment of critical healthcare resources.
