COVID-19 hit China first, then traveled to Europe, followed by the United States. Emerging markets, particularly in the Global South, are now at the epicenter of the pandemic, with daily infections now exceeding those in the United States and Europe.

 In this 4-part series of ESG News & Views, Corporate Citizenship in the Global South During COVID-19, Jeff Hoffman, Institute Leader of Corporate Citizenship & Philanthropy for The Conference Board, explores how multinational companies and those headquartered in the region – Africa, Latin America, India, and the Middle East, are leveraging their resources in response to the crisis. In Part 1: Africa, he sits down with Dorcas Onyango, Head of Sustainability, Southern & East Africa Business Unit, Coca-Cola, and Ruth Lewin, Head of Corporate Sustainability, Discovery Limited, to learn more about how the pandemic is impacting the African continent and how their businesses are stepping up to provide critical support for their employees, first responders, and the nation.
