Africa CDC Epidemiologists
Epidemics can be stopped faster when countries are aware, prepared, and – most of all – coordinated. It is a lesson we learn time and again, and which was brought into focus more clearly than ever by the recent Ebola epidemic in West Africa. This is why the Member States of the African Union joined together to create the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC). As a key part of the mission to promote an integrated, prosperous, and peaceful Africa, Africa CDC is dedicated to helping countries across the continent protect against health emergencies.
