Africa CDC Workforce Development Framework

The Africa Centres for Diseases Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) is a specialized technical institution of the African Union (AU) launched in January 2017. It is mandated to support Member States in capacity building in public health. A Task Force for Workforce Development was established in 2018 and has prepared and published a Framework for Public Health Workforce Development for 2020-2025. HELINA contributed to the development of this Framework and will therefore contribute to the operationalization of the Framework. HELINA has nominated two members to serve on the Health Information Exchange (HIE) Taskforce that will coordinate and draft a report to guide the African member states on technical, policy and governance issues around HIE.
