Establishment of Africa CDC

We need more organizations that work for non-communicable diseases control in Africa. African nations are reunited again to establish Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia as of January 31, 2017. Headquartered in Addis Ababa, Africa CDC functions in network with Regional Collaborating Centers in Egypt, Nigeria, Gabon, Zambia, and Kenya. Priorities will be given for emerging health threats of Africa. A ground work of YPCDN can act as a plat form for inauguration and incorporation of policies whenever new organizations are launched. Proactively, YPCDN calls the attention of African CDC towards neglected NCDs in the context of LMICs.
