The Africa Public Health Foundation is delighted to be working with leaders to accelerate the response to COVID-19 and build more resilient health systems. A spotlight on some of those partners is below.

The Partnership to Accelerate COVID-19 Testing (PACT). The Rockefeller Foundation granted US$12 million to the Africa Public Health Foundation to help expand the geographic coverage of testing and strengthen contact tracing in the efforts to contain the  COVID-19 pandemic in Africa, led by the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC).


“The Africa CDC is uniquely positioned to support countries in expanding their testing and tracing capacity and we are pleased to work with them to ensure a more equitable response and recovery from pandemic.” Rajiv Shah, President of The Rockefeller Foundation.


Strengthening the Africa CDC Regional Collaborating Centres (RCCs). The RCCs serve as hubs for Africa CDC surveillance, preparedness and emergency response activities and coordinate regional public health initiatives by Member States in consultation with Africa CDC headquarters.


The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has made a grant to the Africa Public Health Foundation to support critical work led by Africa CDC to strengthen its Regional Collaborating Centres.




Africa CDC COVID-19 Response. At the start of the pandemic, Africa CDC developed a continent-wide strategy for COVID-19 that was endorsed on 22 February 2020 by the Member States of the African Union.



The Skoll Foundation has made a grant to the Africa Public Health Foundation to contribute to the implementation of this critical strategy by the Africa CDC.


Beyond the doors of the Africa Public Health Foundation, people from all sectors are coming together to collaborate and respond to this pandemic. We would like to extend our thanks for your commitment.


“No one doubts that the road to pandemic preparedness requires unprecedented levels of political and financial engagement. It is difficult but achievable. The health of the continent, and of the world, depends on all of us keeping our commitments.”

John Nkengasong, Director, Africa CDC
