(Togo First) - Moustafa Mijiyawa, Togo’s minister of health, is the new board chairman of the Africa Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC).  The Togolese official was elected earlier this month for a three-year term, in Addis Ababa, at the sixth meeting of the organization’s board. 

Mijiyawa, professor of Rheumatology, has been active for more than 30 years in the health sector, both in Togo and outside. His new mission at CDC is to improve upon achievements of his predecessors.  

Africa CDC is an organization of the African Union (AU). Created in January 2017, it collaborates with all 55 member-States of the Union, preventing the transmission of diseases, putting in place a system for medical surveillance and disease detection, especially epidemics and health threats. 

The governing board of Africa CDC gives strategic instructions to the organization’s sécretariat, on all health issues, in line with the AU’s policies and procedures. It has 15 members, including 10 representatives of the African Union’s member-States.
