Abstract

In the African Great Lakes region responses to COVID-19 have not only been shaped by government information, but by the intervention of herbalists, traditional healers, religious leaders and customary authorities. Often healthcare is provided by relatives and between households. Our new series examines these health-seeking behaviours, and the diverse impact of the pandemic across the region, to deliver to communities place-sensitive and meaningful information.
