Despite COVID-19’s continued spread in Africa, recent data suggest that mask-wearing is declining. During the last week of November 2020, leaders and communities across Africa rallied around an important and critical idea: Keep masking. Africa CDC, the African Union Office of the Youth Envoy, the African Youth Front on Coronavirus, Resolve to Save Lives, and Pandemic Action Network partnered to launch Africa Mask Week. In the weeks since, the effort sustained participation in 50 out of 54 African countries. Read more about Africa Mask Week’s success here.
