The partners initiated this series in March 2020 to raise awareness among African citizens and civil society about the pandemic and the associated public health guidance from the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, and the WHO.

The first phase of the series focused on the continent's emergency response to the outbreak and the transition to long-term reconstruction. This second phase will highlight a continental awareness campaign to ensure that the wider African public has access to verified information about the Covid-19 vaccine from authentic sources, with a particular focus on the Africa CDC.
