Dr Juliet Nyasulu and Professor Richard Cooke will be speakers for this webinar, which is part of Pandemic Pangolins series.

How do we maintain and extend resilience in primary health care during a pandemic? The thorny challenge of how we continue to provide a range of vital health services in a time of crisis is the topic of our Pandemic Pangolin webinar this week.  Dr Juliet Nyasulu and Prof Richard Cooke will speak about how essential services have been affected. Juliet will draw on her recent publication offering insights on applying the World Health Organisation Health systems Framework to assess these effects of the pandemic in South Africa and propose possible solutions to address the gaps. Richard will speak to his hands-on experience of the preparation and functioning of PHC facilities and the Nasrec field hospital during the current pandemic.

Stephen Pentz from the Department of Family Medicine at Wits will host this webinar.
