About us

Though African institutions have demonstrated the capacity to identify and control outbreaks of communicable diseases, communicable disease prevention and management – particularly with regard to antimicrobial resistance (AMR, a predominant global health threat) and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), as well as to NTD co-infections and drug-resistant bacteria – remain a significant challenge across sub-Saharan Africa (the region with the highest AMR burden in the world).
