Answers to all questions asked during the webinar session and in the two Telegram channels have now been provided by the session presenters. The full Q&A has been consolidated into a single document that can be found here:

These are the questions that have been answered:

  • What are you planning to do to improve the capacity of health facilities in the face of the challenges indicated in your presentation (Uganda)?
  • According to the presentation about Uganda, HIV as a comorbidity doesn't increase the risk of severe form of COVID-19. Is it true regardless of the CD4 level?
  • Why is it that people with asthma and HIV are less at risk to die from COVID-19, despite these conditions having more impact on the respiratory system than diabetes or hypertension?
  • I wonder if it is advisable to follow up the children of mothers vaccinated during pregnancy because the data presented refer to the time of delivery.
  • How to identify and mobilize these target population for vaccination? Especially with comorbidities and elderly, particularly in the Low and Middle Income Countries with fragile health systems?
