Africa Launches Lab Network, Cholera Taskforce To Contain Disease

In April 2024, health officials from 14 Eastern African countries met in Kenya to launch two major public health initiatives with the support of the Africa CDC: the Eastern Africa Regional Integrated Surveillance and Laboratory Network (RISLNET) and the Eastern Africa Regional Cholera Taskforce. RISLNET aims to improve health monitoring and response across the region by integrating existing systems from various sectors. The Cholera Taskforce focuses on managing and preventing cholera outbreaks through coordinated strategies. These efforts, supported by significant investment from the Kenyan government, aim to enhance regional health security, promote economic growth, and align with Africa CDC’s strategic objectives for 2023-2027.
