AFRIDAC is a not-for-profit organisation that work towards restoring the dignity and integrity of Africans in the Diaspora and in Africa. We believe that Africans in diaspora are the change catalyst in resolving Africa’s development challenge and we work towards building information and exchange bridges across the continent.
AFRIDAC have over the last few years advocated on migrant health workforce issues as active members of the Global Health Workforce Alliance (GHWA) of the WHO, Health Workforce Advocacy Initiative (HWAI), O’Neill Institute of Georgetown University, DC, Action for Global Health (UK) among other networks. Also, a key aspect of her advocacy work relates to analysis of immigration policies that affects immigrants of African origin both documented and undocumented in the UK and network with the At Home in Europe Project of the Open Society Foundation (OSF), Migrants Rights Network (MRN) and UK Race and Europe Network (UKREN).
