Today is the official launch of the “African Experts Podcast”, an online talk show that features Sierra Leonean journalist Vickie Remoe in conversation with researchers, practitioners, innovators, and entrepreneurs across the African continent.
The podcast brings together experts to discuss big ideas, solutions, and insights on issues that are shaping African lives. It features different experts from across the continent to discuss topics like health, technology, lifestyle, sex education, economics, and development.
In the first episode, Remoe is in conversation with African public health expert Nana Kofi Quakyi from Ghana. In this episode, Nana and Vickie looked back at the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on public health on the continent. Ghana’s COVID-19 response, vaccine rollout, vaccine fears, and what people need to know so that they can continue to protect themselves and their communities during the pandemic.
Nana is a doctoral candidate and Research Fellow in the Department of Health Policy and Management at New York University’s School of Global Public Health. He is also a health economist and Policy Analyst specializing in healthcare systems and health services research, focusing on financing and provider payments mechanisms.
