COVID-19 has created challenges for African countries, but not necessarily in the ways that early observers expected. The continent appears to be weathering the pandemic in terms of broad health outcomes, but the challenges of adequate health infrastructures in most African countries remain.

The Association of African Universities (AAU), in collaboration with the African Union and the Government of Ghana, is inviting all educational stakeholders to the first Virtual AAU-Academic Diaspora Homecoming.
The overall objective of the Homecoming is to strengthen collaboration and partnership among research and educational institutions of higher learning in Africa and the African Diaspora to advance quality of education and general wellbeing of all persons of African descent.
Please join us to hear from Professor at the University of Ghana and President of the African Studies Association of Africa, Akosua Adomako Ampofo. This event will be held online. Please check back for Zoom details.
