Science, Technology and Innovation for Public Health in Africa


The main goals of Africa’s Science and Technology Consolidated Plan of Action (CPA) are to strengthen Africa’s capacities to develop, harness and apply science, technology, and innovation to achieve millennium development goals (MDGs), as well as mobilizing the continent’s expertise and institutions to contribute to the global pool of science and technological innovations. Key to these goals is the promotion of transnational Research and Development (R&D) programmes.
