The agency 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 programmes.
Africa CDC has been at the forefront of the continent’s fight against the pandemic. The agency has set a goal to vaccinate 60 per cent the continent’s population before the end of 2022. To achieve this ambitious and critical goal, the Africa CDC and the MasterCard Foundation are launching “Saving Lives and Livelihoods,” partnership for COVID-19 Vaccination in Africa The planned Saving Lives and Livelihoods partnership is a unique initiative due to its scope and scale, the critical topics it focuses on, as well as the way it will be governed.
