The novel coronavirus is imposing unprecedented health, nutrition, social, and economic risks to the global population. Ethiopia is also being affected; while the number of daily COVID-19 cases has decreased since the peak in August, the virus continues to spread, threatening to reverse some of the nutritional gains that the country has achieved in the last few years. Joint efforts by key stakeholders to help support the Ethiopian government’s strong commitment to preparedness and response are critical to combatting the epidemic. In light of this, Tufts University, in collaboration with Save the Children, has organized a webinar that will bring together representatives from government, civil society, and academia to discuss lessons learned and practical and innovative approaches regarding COVID-19, different sectors’ adaptation and response plans, and recommendations to address the current and future epidemic and minimize its negative impact on nutrition.
