Ethio-American Doctors Group (EADG) has launched a webinar series to discuss on the COVID-19 pandemic

The international devastation caused by COVID-19 has been catastrophic. As we are witnessing high income countries struggle to contain and control the pandemic, it is troubling to think of the damage it may cause to low income countries. The sweeping measures taken by the Ethiopian Government are encouraging, but similar to high income countries, Ethiopia will experience limited availability of personal protective equipment and testing kits.

Ethio-American Doctors Group (EADG) has launched a webinar series that connects Diaspora healthcare academics and specialists who are currently managing the disease burden to local healthcare professionals in Ethiopia to discuss the pandemic. We encourage you to participate in the eight scheduled upcoming live webinar sessions since April 6/2020 at 9 O’clock Ethiopian local time, which you can access from your computer or phone. The webinar sessions are intended for:

  • Health Care professionals who will be in direct contact with COVID-19 patients;
  • Leaders in healthcare institutions; and
  • Leaders among regional health bureaus.
