"Education is essential in building long-term approaches to countering crime and violence."

"When you have a #DNAbacklog,

it’s not just justice

that’s being delayed,

but countless lives

are put on hold."

advancing justice though DNA technology"

AWARENESS and EDUCATION

By working together, we can achieve the necessary goals we need to combat GBV, human trafficking and violent crime in Africa.  We do this by:

  • Hosting workshops and symposiums to inform and connect key opinion leaders and change advocates throughout Africa

  • Offering webinars and podcasts for you to learn more about the role and potential of DNA in the criminal justice system

  • Sharing news of changes in DNA legislation and local lobbying efforts via our social media channels

  • Engaging with partners world-wide to align common strategic goals for the betterment of society​

WE BELIEVE IN SHARING
OUR VALUABLE DNA RESOURCES

To enable our forensic community to learn from best practices in the use of DNA Evidence to solve cases and prevent violent crime, as well as for humanitarian efforts, we have created a new platform on our website where you can access our 'DNA Toolkit' of resources.

To benefit from these assets please visit our Resources page.

REGIONS IN AFRICA WHERE WE CONNECT

Many current DNA databases worldwide have been directly aided or established

due to the collective efforts of our regional leaders and global partners.

As more countries in Africa realise the value of forensic DNA profiling,

we offer assistance to policy makers to achieve their legislative objectives,

as well as guide the implementation process.
