      Dr. Muhammad Musa shared an opinion this week advocating for more community engagement in country COVID-19 responses. Highlighting resistance to top-down mandates in countries across income levels, recommended three lessons for engaging communities in a more effective COVID-19 response:

      1. Consulting local leaders when developing public health strategies
      2. Engaging existing community networks, for example, community health workers
      3. Learning from past public health challenges

      What do you think about Dr. Musa’s argument and the challenges of balancing top-down and community-driven efforts in the pandemic response? What has been the experience in your country? Please reply and share below.
