Enhancing and Strengthening Information Systems Linking Surveillance and Laboratory Data in West Africa

Project Objective

To implement plans to enhance surveillance and information systems in West Africa. This strategically builds on lessons learned from two workshops held in the West Africa region in which select countries in the region created multi-sectoral plans for enhancing surveillance and information systems capacity both within their borders and across the region. CDC’s Division of Global Health Protection Epidemiology, Informatics, Surveillance, and Laboratory Branch proposes to continue these activities in West Africa.
