The AFROSCREEN network
The AFROSCREEN project is structuring an African network to strengthen laboratory sequencing capacities, share data and ensure effective monitoring of virus circulation.
The AFROSCREEN project, funded by AFD, is coordinated by ANRS | Maladies infectieuses émergentes.
It is implemented by a consortium made up of 3 partner research institutions:
ANRS | Maladies infectieuses émergentes, Research Institute for Development (IRD), Institut Pasteur.
