In this unprecedented time of a global public health emergency, we are reorganising our editorial coverage and network of correspondents to ensure that you will find accurate and authoritative news and analysis of the coronavirus pandemic on our daily digital service.
We will report on how it affects Africa directly on the medical front but also its indirect consequences as economies around the world slow down and markets are thrown into turmoil.

Understand Africa's tomorrow... today
We believe that Africa is poorly represented, and badly under-estimated. Beyond the vast opportunity manifest in African markets, we highlight people who make a difference; leaders turning the tide, youth driving change, and an indefatigable business community. That is what we believe will change the continent, and that is what we report on. With hard-hitting investigations, innovative analysis and deep dives into countries and sectors, The Africa Report delivers the insight you need.
