The DPME spearheaded the writing of a Country Report to record the storyline and broad understanding of how the country managed, responded to and combatted the negative effects of the Covid-19 pandemic between March 2020 and March 2021.

The SA Covid19 Country Report was tabled to Governance, State Capacity and Institutional Development (GSCID) DG Cluster International Cooperation, Trade and Security (ICTS) Cluster, the Forum of South African Directors-General (FOSAD).

The report draws lessons from experiences across sectors, and also provides recommendations for short- and medium-term interventions to guide future generations on decision-making.
