The African Union will, on Monday the 14th December 2020, launch the Ground Breaking and Unveiling Ceremony for the China-aided project of the Africa CDC Headquarters building (Phase I) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The building will be located at an area called the African Village, in Addis Ababa.
Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) is a specialized technical institution of the African Union established to support public health initiatives of Member States and strengthen the capacity of their public health institutions to detect, prevent, control and respond quickly and effectively to disease threats. Africa CDC supports African Union Member States in providing coordinated and integrated solutions to the inadequacies in their public health infrastructure, human resource capacity, disease surveillance, laboratory diagnostics, and preparedness and response to health emergencies and disasters.
Established in January 2016 by the 26th Ordinary Assembly of Heads of State and Government and officially launched in January 2017, Africa CDC is guided by the principles of leadership, credibility, ownership, delegated authority, timely dissemination of information, and transparency in carrying out its day-to-day activities.
The institution serves as a platform for Member States to share and exchange knowledge and lessons from public health interventions.
