SACIDS Mission

The Mission of the SACIDS Foundation for One Health is to undertake cutting edge, transdisciplinary and multisectoral research that is impact orientated, prioritised and system based. This will be undertaken in southern, central and eastern Africa and where appropriate delivered through strategic partnerships with academia, research institutes, and international organisations.


The SACIDS Vision targets the impact that in Africa the health and food security and livelihoods are measurably improved through mitigation of the impact of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) on humans, animals and the environment
