7 April is World Health Day. Please take a moment to thank medical personnel for their efforts during the #COVID19 response and to thank midwives and nurses for helping us all live in a happier, healthier world.
We particularly call on the AU, UN, WHO, World Bank and G-20 to urgently put in place a plan that will moderate the effects of the onslaught of COVID-19 on Africa. #HEObasanjo
This #WorldHealthDay, we recognise the invaluable role of nurses & midwives. They are on the frontlines every day, caring for people living with HIV & TB, pregnant women, mothers and babies, and fighting stigma & discrimination.
Thank you! 🙏🏿🙏🏽🙏🙏🏻🙏🏼🙏🏾
When we think of nurses, we need to go beyond the “traditional” roles. Nurses are:

@GenesisEconomic looks at the #doublingrate of #Covid19 across countries since the first 100 cases. The higher the rate the #FlatterTheCurve. ZA’s doubling rate is >20 @SA_AIDSCOUNCIL @HealthZA @PresidencyZA #StayAtHome
I ascribe this reduction in the rate of increase due to: closing the borders, enforcing quarantine on inbound travelers, lockdown has slowed internal transmission by reducing the spread during large gatherings and overcrowded transport routes eg Trains, buses and taxis
