Emergency Programs

The CdcAfrica HOPE FOR HELP PILOT PROJECT is its emergency action and focal point! It is a plan to immediately and effectively help in fighting to contain Malaria, HIV/AIDS And other debilitating Diseases in Africa in order to abate the rapid hemorrhaging of human lives in Africa as well as revamp immunization and vaccination programs for all infants and young women to bring and promote good health and the decency of life to a new and a hopeful generation.

The pilot projects are intended to be the hub in 4 selected countries around which activities will revolve in the quadrants.  There will be clinical, research/training, hostel suites and warehouse buildings. There are about 16 ambulatory vans and buses required to extend the health delivery into remote areas and nearby countries. 

CdcAfrica has also been participating in emergency health relief efforts during previous catastrophes. Many of its volunteer physicians have over thirty years experience in delivering emergency health service. In spite of their normal heavy schedule at their various locations around the country, they are available to deploy to disaster zones within the shortest possible notice. Currently CdcAfrica is at its low percentile of volunteer medical personnel due to the enormity of its tasks globally. Its volunteer force includes:
