Abstract

The AfriCoVER project (RIA2020EF-3031) aims to conduct population-based surveillance in a Demographic Health Surveillance System (HDSS) of 16,500 people in a peri-urban neighbourhood of Maputo, Mozambique, by collecting clinical information and respiratory specimens from patients during biweekly household visits, complemented with data from local clinics.
