The IFBA is pleased to collaborate with the Global Partnership (GP) regarding the formation of a dedicated Women’s Network of African health security professionals. The GP’s Signature Initiative to Mitigate Biological Threats in Africa supports coordinated action by GP and African partners to address emerging and ongoing biothreats on the African continent. Practical implementation of the Signature Initiative’s threat reduction programs prioritizes gender equity and robust engagement of local women champions as a critical contributor to sustainable health security in Africa. This new Women’s Network will further define the unique contributions and perspectives of women professionals across African regions.
