The dominant discourses during the COVID-19 pandemic have mostly been generated in the Global North, by a minority of wealthy and powerful authors, reflecting narrowly on a crisis that, while impacting the whole world, was experienced in vastly different ways. This event is part of a wider project to shift the narratives. It reflects the responses to COVID-19 in vulnerable and underrepresented communities across sub-Saharan Africa.
A short documentary will be screened along with presentations and discussions of 5 policy briefs co-created from our participatory research with communities.
Please join us to bear witness, to ask questions, and to help shift some of the assumed “norms” of global pandemic narratives. More info and registration here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/community-insights-in-health-education-in-africa-after-covid-19-tickets-590078188747
