African Partnership Outbreak Response Alliance (APORA)

APORA began in 2014 with 12 countries to mitigate the threat of emerging and re-emerging pathogens in Africa due to lack of early warning detection and response. There are 26 African countries participating in APORA events, and membership is open to any African nation. APORA members are currently developing a manual of best practices, and have expanded activities to include table-top exercises and training in public health emergency operations.

APORA’s motto is “forward together” and speaks to the member nations’ solidarity in preventing and responding to infectious diseases which know no boarders.
