A hub for information, analysis, and the global response to COVID-19’s impact on Africa


COVID-19 Africa Watch tracks major developments and policy announcements from across the continent and also offers a curated selection of analysis on how the pandemic will impact African economies and development efforts. The site is a project of the Milken Institute’s Global Market Development Practice.

The Milken Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank that helps people build meaningful lives, in which they can experience health and well-being, pursue effective education and gainful employment, and access the resources required to create ever-expanding opportunities for themselves and their broader communities.

The Institute’s Global Market Development Practice works to catalyze private-sector-led growth and economic prosperity in developing countries and emerging markets. The practice pursues this mission by facilitating informed and coordinated policymaking processes across government institutions, private-sector stakeholders, and civil society, and by training a generation of leaders in central banks, finance ministries, and securities regulators, among other financial institutions.
