McKinsey On COVID-19

The coronavirus outbreak is first and foremost a human tragedy, affecting hundreds of thousands of people. It is also having a growing impact on the global economy. While business leaders are working to get a perspective on the evolving situation and the implications for their companies, they are only as strong as the communities of which they are a part.  As decision makers figure out how to support response efforts—such as by providing money, equipment, or expertise, they should not assume the worst. 

We are committed to Africa

Unlike many global publications, for nearly a decade we have been committed to showing a complete picture of Africa – not just a single story.  Offended by one-sided coverage of wars, disasters and disease, the founders of Africa.com created a website that provides a balanced view of Africa – current events, business, arts & culture, travel, fashion, sports, information, development, and more.
