Abstract

In an increasingly interconnected world, with the devastating effects of climate changes and humanitarian crises, pandemics and emerging infectious diseases are more likely to become our daily reality. When it comes to health care, sub-Saharan Africa faces more challenges than most other regions of the world, including lack of funds, precarity and poor infrastructures. Yet, these areas are most often on the front lines of infectious threats.
