This page is dedicated to our network of people

united against crime in Africa: Change advocates, lobbyists,

forensic scientists, researchers and humanitarians.


DNAforAfrica's objective is to highlight the importance of DNA sampling

when it comes to fighting violent crime, human trafficking, sexual assault and missing persons cases. Advocacy in this arena is very low in Africa and we believe that by amplifying each other's voices,

we can make our message clear.
