    African States Must Localise Coronavirus Response

    At first it seemed that African countries had been spared the COVID 19 outbreak, but recent infections across the continent have prompted officials to act. The author of this GIGA Focus analyses the situation and argues for local responses to the Corona crisis by African countries.

    Infections '21. Transmission Control of Infections in the 21st Century

    As the Coronavirus pandemic dramatically shows, infections can have severe consequences worldwide. The Leibniz Research Alliance "Infections '21" was founded in 2015 with the goal of studying ways to better control, prevent and fight infectious illnesses and has swiftly adapted to the Covid-19-related challenges. The GIGA is a founding member of this alliance and deals with the access to medicines and vaccines as well as health as a global public good.
