SFC-GCRF Covid-19 grant success

Jean-BenoƮt Falisse awarded SFC-GCRF grant for Covid-19 research.

The project, titled "Interactive dataset of covid-19 governance in Africa" is intended to explore:

  • the socio-political environment (e.g. state of emergency);
  • the actors/institutions involved; and
  • the nature of the measures.

The project is jointly with Wits University in Johannesburg, AMREF University in Nairobi, SIDRA in Somalia, the National Institute of Public Health in Burundi, and the School of Public Health at the University of Kinshasa.

The award of £60,000 will support the production of this dataset through to the end of July.
