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.

Sir Alec Jeffreys is Professor of Genetics at the University of Leicester, and was knighted for services to genetics. We honour him as "the Father of Genetic Fingerprinting". DNA profiling was also developed by Jeffreys and his team in 1985, becoming the standard forensic DNA system used in criminal case work worldwide.
