New data shows that the pandemic brought severe disruptions to the treatment and prevention programmes of diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis in Africa, leading to an increase in cases and deaths.
Non-communicable diseases have also been on the rise. In a WHO survey of 41 countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, hypertension management has been disrupted in 59% of the countries, while diabetic complication management has been disrupted in 56% of the countries.

He also shared his experience on how individuals can protect themselves and how organisations can mitigate the risks their employees face to ensure business continuity.
