Public finances have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in Africa where economies and budgets are poised to be hit hardest given the chronic underinvestment in healthcare and limited fiscal space. To avoid irreparable long-term damage to public finances, it is essential that finance ministries in Africa act decisively and pragmatically. CABRI’s COVID-19 page provides an overview of the fiscal impact and responses to COVID-19 in African countries and shares expert insights into effectively managing extraordinary budgetary pressures.

Covid-19 Public Finance Monitor

The COVID-19 Africa Public Finance Response Monitor provides an overview of expected financing gaps posed by COVID-19 and how African governments are responding to these through expenditure reprioritisation, efficiency gains, resource mobilisation, social assistance, business support, and monetary and macrofinancial policy measures. It also provides information on health financing in Africa (as a proxy of pandemic preparedness) and up-to-date statistics of confirmed COVID-19 cases, tests and deaths. The COVID-19 Africa Public Finance Response Monitor includes a subset of actions taken by governments and does not aim to provide a full picture of the quantitative measures undertaken. Confirmed cases, tests and deaths will be updated daily and response measures will be updated weekly.
