Virtual launch of the Africa Communication and Information Platform (ACIP)
for Health and Economic Action taking place on Tuesday 23 June 2020 from
2.00 pm to 3.30 pm, Addis Ababa time (GMT+3).
The platform will serve as a two-way information and communication platform
between citizens and government but also other stakeholders. It will bring
together for the first time, the major mobile network operators on the
continent including MTN, Vodacom, Airtel, Safaricom and Orange. The
platform will further provide the ECA, Africa CDC, Country’s National
COVID-19 Taskforces, Ministries of Health, and Ministries of Finance,
Economy, and Planning, and other stakeholders with analysis of live data
for decision-making, monitoring and evaluation. At its peak, the platform
could reach over 350-460 million devices and people. The platform uses
Artificial Intelligence to analyse a combination of online digital data, as
well as mobile based information. It will also allow for just in time data,
improve linkage of government and research centers with citizens, and
assist in analysing the broader socio-economic situation of populations,
and identification and targeting of policies.
Simultaneous interpretation (French and English) will be provided. The link
