Abstract

There is growing concern and recognition that the COVID-19, including the measures to reduce its spread will worsen existing and trigger new tensions in Africa’s health spheres. Before the coronavirus outbreak, the health sector in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and other Low-Mid Income Countries (LMICs) are fraught with weak psychological and public health systems.  The quality of health services and the healthcare systems are major causes for concern for World Health Organization (WHO).
