Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention

Overview

The Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC), officially launched in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on January 31, 2017, is Africa’s continent-wide public health agency. It envisions a safer, healthier, integrated and stronger Africa, whereby Member States are capable of effectively responding to outbreaks of infectious diseases and other public health threats. The agency’s mission is to strengthen Africa’s public health institutions’ capabilities to detect and respond quickly and effectively to disease outbreaks and other health burdens through an integrated network of continent-wide preparedness and response, surveillance, laboratory, and research programs. In order to achieve its mission, the Africa CDC will work in all geographic regions of Africa and has developed a 5 years strategic plan in the following priority areas:

  1. Surveillance and disease intelligence
  2. Preparedness and response
  3. Laboratory systems and networks
