Activity Title: The Impact of COVID-19 on Global Infectious Diseases: 2022 Update
Release Date: January 18, 2022
Estimated Time to Complete Activity: 70 minutes

Statement of Need:
With the world’s attention and resources focused towards COVID-19 prevention and response efforts, we have witnessed widespread disruptions to HIV, TB, and malaria service delivery programs globally with shortages in medical supplies, treatments, and diagnostics. As observed during previous crises, the indirect morbidity and mortality effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may be as important as the direct effects of the pandemic itself. Existing infectious diseases management and prevention programs have been hit by lockdowns, changing funding priorities, and re-allocation of staff and resources. This webinar is a follow-up to the webinar published on October 7, 2020, when Lulu Bravo and Francoise Venter discussed COVID-19’s early impact on childhood vaccinations and the provision of TB and HIV care during the evolving pandemic. Much data has been collected and analyzed since then to better understand the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the prevention and management of communicable diseases.
