CIDRZ CEO AMONG THE FIRST BENEFICIARIES OF THE AU/AFRICA CDC KOFI ANNAN FOUNDATION FELLOWSHIP

The Centre for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia (CIDRZ) Chief Executive Officer, Dr Izukanji Sikazwe was among 20 fellows from 14 African countries to participate in the in-person training of the inaugural cohort of the 2021-2022 Kofi Annan Global Health Africa Union/Africa CDC – Leadership Fellows Program.

Fellows admitted in the programme were senior public health professionals from African Union Member States who contributed to and lead the implementation of a new public health order for Africa, and in turn mentor and develop the next generation of public health leaders for the continent.

The African Union Commission launched the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) – Kofi Annan Global Health Leadership Programme on 25 May 2020 in partnership with the Kofi Annan Foundation, following its approval by the Governing Board of Africa CDC in March 2018. The aim is to support aspirational Public Health Leaders (Fellows) from Africa in acquiring advanced skills and competencies to strategize, manage and lead public health programmes that will transform public health in Africa.
