Problem

Gathering genomic data is critical to better understand diseases prone to Africa, such as tuberculosis, malaria, and HIV. 

However, Africa is a genomic data "dark spot" and only provides 2% of global genomic data even though:

 

  • Africa has the fastest-growing population

  • Is the most vulnerable to infectious disease

Critical Need

Presently, COVID-19 has fundamentally disrupted business as usual. There is a need to ramp up testing efforts in order to better understand the extent of the spread of the virus in Africa.
