The African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), an autonomous entity of the African Union (AU), in collaboration with the University of Cape Town (UCT) Convocation and the Nelson Mandela School of Public Governance (NMS) will host the 2nd African Month Public Symposium on Africa’s innovations in the global fight against COVID-19 on the 27th to 29th May 2020.

The public symposium is the second instalment to commemorate the annual Africa Month. The 2019 symposium focused on the role of young African leaders in Pan-Africanism and Regional Integration. In 2020, the Symposium discussions will focus on responses by African countries to the COVID-19 epidemic, in relation to governance and development. Through the symposium, there will be an exploration of the actions required towards the fulfilment of African shared values and principles in the future.
