The Africa Public Health Foundation and Africa CDC would particularly like to recognise those partners helping us to fast-track the response to COVID-19. A spotlight on some of those partners is below.


Through its COVID-19 Recovery and Resilience Program, Mastercard Foundation has committed US$40 million to Africa CDC’s Partnership to Accelerate COVID-19 Testing (PACT).


“We are impressed by the swift pan-African response to COVID-19 led by Africa CDC and regional organizations.  They have created a clear plan and targets to deliver a robust health response and save lives. The Mastercard Foundation stands with the Africa CDC and calls on other funders to support this excellent plan. Fighting this pandemic requires all of us to coordinate our efforts and work together.”

Reeta Roy, Mastercard Foundation President and CEO.


Jack ma Foundation

The Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia have supported Africa CDC with the purchase of critical equipment for COVID-19 response. This has meant millions of masks, swabs and test kits, ventilators and vast supplies of protective clothing, face shields have been directed to African Union Member States.



In partnership with ECONET, Africa CDC is setting up a digital purchasing system that will allow Member States to jointly order vital supplies needed to fight the spread of the pandemic on the continent.


Africa 50

Africa50 made a grant of $300,000 to support response to the COVID-19.  The grant will be used specifically for the purchase of test kits and other medical equipment and to mobilize frontline responders, as highlighted in the Africa Joint Continental Strategy for COVID-19.


“We look forward to a longer-term collaboration with Africa CDC to help address the continent’s health infrastructure needs, leveraging each other’s expertise and stakeholder networks. We are fully committed to engaging with our African shareholders and partners in these challenging times”

Alain Ebobisse, CEO
