EU for health security in Africa: ECDC for Africa CDC/ involvement of key non-state actors

La solicitud fue exitosa.

Dr. OLEG WERETELNIK/ INSTITUT DE DIPLOMATIE PUBLIQUE

Dear European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information.
The European Commission's work programme for 2020 announced a new comprehensive strategy with Africa to boost relations and deepen the partnership with a special focus on human development (through public services for health).
In October 2020, ECDC and DG for International Partnerships (INTPA) has concluded Contribution Agreement to implement a four-year capacity and partnership building project entitled “EU for health security in Africa: ECDC for Africa CDC”.
The overall aim of the project is to strengthen Africa CDC capacities in preparedness and response to health threats, facilitate harmonised surveillance and disease intelligence of prioritised outbreak-prone communicable diseases at continental level, and support the implementation of Africa CDC’s public health workforce development strategy. It is expected that the project will result in improved health security in Africa through sharing EU practices and strengthening Africa CDC capacities in preparedness, surveillance, and response to health threats posed by communicable diseases.
The resolution of 25 March 2021 on the sustainable and inclusive development aspects of the proposed new strategy with Africa supported the comprehensiveness of the strategy, provided it includes a monitoring mechanism involving civil society, local authorities, and national parliaments.
However, the text of the above-mentioned resolution does not provide details of the proposed monitoring mechanism.
Successful implementation of a new strategy with Africa requires the establishment of an effective mechanism for monitoring and evaluation. To ensure that the monitoring mechanism is effective, it is necessary to include involvement of key non-state actors (NSAs): civil society organizations, academic institutions, lobby groups, and others.
The Institute requests you to clarify or provide more information in relation to the fulfillment of the Agency mandate about the above-mentioned monitoring mechanism and current possibilities for national CSOs, NSAs to be involved in decision-making and monitoring processes of the new EU strategy with Africa.
Yours faithfully,
O. WERETELNIK/ INSTITUT DE DIPLOMATIE PUBLIQUE
