The Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation, in partnership with GTAC and the National Research Foundation is working with South Africa’s top academics to record, chronicle, analyse and assess the measures Government and its partners has implemented to combat the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The papers are being developed as events unfold, but all preliminary chapters are housed on this page. These research papers, authored by various experts from universities and science councils across South Africa, will form part of an on-going project reflecting on Government’s response to the pandemic. Marié Kirsten, the project manager, spoke to David Makhado, DPME’s coordinator of the COVID-19 Country Report about the origin of the report, about the multi-dimensional team compiling it and about how the report will be shared and disseminated.
