EAC REGIONAL NETWORK OF PUBLIC HEALTH REFERENCE LABORATORIES FOR COMMUNICABLE DISEASES (EAC-RNPHRL-CD) PROJECT

  • Strengthening capacities to respond to pathogens of bio-safety level (BSL) 3 & 4


We help bring awareness to disease outbreaks in East Africa.

The East African Community (EAC), in collaboration with the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine (BNITM), are implementing a German Government funded project entitled “EAC Regional Network of Public Health Reference Laboratories for Communicable Diseases”, which aims to establish a sustainable laboratory infrastructure and response network across East Africa.

 

PROJECT OBJECTIVES

PROJECT OBJECTIVES

To strengthen capacity of EAC Partner States existing National Public Reference Laboratories to detect and respond to pathogens of biosafety levels 3 and 4 (Phase I), AMR surveillance (Phase II) and data sharing through the mobile laboratories.
