Shortly after the outbreak of the pandemic in South Africa on 5 March 2020, the Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) decided on the development of a South African COVID-19 Country Report. The aim was to provide a storyline and a broad understanding of how South Africa managed this disastrous situation. Scientists across various academic disciplines were invited by the National Research Foundation (NRF) to contribute to this important initiative which is supported by GTAC. This presentation will be about Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 and focus on Government leadership & governance and legal & regulatory responses.

Come join us as Prof Bernd Rosenkranz (President of Fundisa African Academy of Medicines Development and Professor Emeritus, Division of Clinical Pharmacology, Stellenbosch University), Prof Babette Rabie (School of Public Leadership, Stellenbosch University) and Dr Marietjie Botes (Center of Medical Ethics and Law, Stellenbosch University) provide an overview on successes and challenges, lessons learnt and future recommendations.
