With many African countries experiencing second and third waves of COVID-19 infections, the governance and programme outputs over the reporting period continued to be held virtually. In particular, CABRI was able to convene the General Assembly meeting that was postponed in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions, and four meetings of the Management Committee between April 2021 and March 2022.
Although the virtual platform initially reduced the benefits of in-person activities, such as the social interactions that bring about longstanding peer-alliances, innovative programme formats and virtual meetings software have been able to recreate some of the peer-learning experiences. A good example of these are the online ‘bi-laterals’ between country teams participating in the various BPFC programme outputs.
