A Tunisian in the Lancet Commission on COVID-19 Task Force
October 27, 2020
Dr. Nissaf Ben Alaya, director of the Tunisian National Observatory for Emergent Diseases at The Ministry of Health of Tunisia, was invited -and accepted- to join the new Lancet Commission on COVID-19 as a member of the Task Force on Public Health Measures to Suppress the Pandemic. She is the only North/West African/MENA member of the task force. The Lancet Commission on COVID-19, headquartered at Columbia University, brings together the world’ leading practitioners on COVID-19 and aims at comparing experiences and suppressing the pandemic. CGC Tunis and the Tunisian Center for Public Health worked with the Center for Sustainable Development in the Earth Institute to make it happen.
