TECHNICAL SPECIALTIES

Agriculture & Food Security

Most African farmers are disadvantaged at every stage in the process of producing and selling crops. Large areas of soil are nutrient deficient. Rains are erratic. Technology is scarce. Credit is limited. Markets are often out of reach or inefficient. But in spite of these problems, PanAfricare knows that Africa can be the world’s next breadbasket.

Approximately 80% of Africa’s farms are small plots run by rural farmers, and if they are equipped with knowledge of best agricultural practices and with basic inputs such as improved seeds, they are able to maximize yields of diverse crops to feed themselves, their families and their communities. PanAfricare targets rural populations with interventions to improve yields, incomes and nutrition practices to bolster the continent’s ability to feed itself, and its ability to eventually help feed the rest of the world.

Health, HIV & AIDS

On almost all measures – from the rates of child and maternal mortality, malnutrition, HIV & AIDS and deaths by preventable diseases, to the availability of clinics and medical personnel – Sub-Saharan Africa presents the world’s most serious health problems but has the fewest resources to solve them. Increasingly, African leaders are making health a top government priority, and PanAfricare knows that African nations can take control of health issues.

PanAfricare is strengthening African health systems with community-based, capacity building interventions, and our broad expertise enables partnerships with countries facing problems of all kinds: polio, maternal and child health, HIV & AIDS, orphans and vulnerable children, reproductive health, malnutrition, tuberculosis or malaria.
