2024 Agenda For Action For African Leaders

RANA 2024 Agenda For Action For African Leaders

Working in close partnership with Pandemic Action Network, Resilience Action Network Africa (RANA) is proud to join the more than 50 African civil society organizations calling for African leaders to bring new urgency and political resolve to prevent the next pandemic crisis and to secure progress towards Africa CDC’s vision for a New Public Health Order. Together, we call for leaders to commit to the following agenda for action:

  • Secure additional, long-term domestic financing needed to close critical pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response funding gaps in Africa
  • Address current global imbalances by augmenting Africa’s collective voice on global health matters and building regional and global partnerships
  • Critically expand local health product manufacturing in Africa — currently only 1% of the continent’s human vaccine needs manufactured on the continent
  • Make African health systems gender responsive, and pandemic- and climate-resilient

We call for progress on these actions to be prioritized with reporting back at the Africa Union’s annual general assembly. Leaders must deliver on the agenda to protect Africa and humanity from another devastating pandemic crisis, and build a more resilient, inclusive, and equitable public health system in the continent.
