Pan-African Network for Rapid Research, Response, Relief, and Preparedness for Infectious Diseases Epidemics (PANDORA-ID)
The overall objective is to strengthen regional and pan-African capacities and systems for enabling rapid and effective response to emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases threats arising from within Africa, or those imported from overseas. This initiative will build on existing collaborations and ongoing work with the EDCTP West, Central, East and Southern African networks to: develop and setup robust ‘ready to go within 48-72 hours’ PANDORA-ID-NET outbreak rapid response teams to assist when an outbreak occurs; develop capacities for conduct of research; and train, develop and empower younger generation scientists, healthcare workers, laboratory personnel, clinical trialists, ethicists and social scientists.
