We focus our work in three areas that contribute the highest burden to healthcare in Africa.
1. Significant and Infectious Diseases (SIDs)
Despite significant improvements in prevention and treatment, infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria continue to have a disproportionate impact on the African population. ACA’s capacity development programs promote the integration of infectious disease response within broader health systems.
2. Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs)
Chronic diseases represent a growing public health challenge as they become ever more prevalent as a result of demographic, behavioral and social changes. ACA’s capacity development programs strengthen response to NCDs such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
3. Health Equity and Rights (HER)
Equitable access to healthcare for all is an important component of disease prevention. ACA’s capacity development programs strengthen systems that focus on provision of healthcare for marginalized populations.
