Healthcare and WASH versus COVID-19 outbreak in Africa






People, planet, prosperity and peace are four priorities shared by Africa and Europe, and areas where opportunities for beneficial cooperation abound. Over the past three decades, the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has worked with many organisations and institutions across Africa. This report and its accompanying interactive online service, 'Africa StoryMaps', present the key findings from this collaboration, and set out options the decision-making, research, and education communities may consider.
