  • Scale-up project
Sentinel is a pandemic and outbreak early warning and response system that detects viral threats in real-time and prepares the global community to stop diseases before they spread. Jointly led by ACEGID (West Africa) and the Broad Institute (USA), Sentinel builds health system resilience in West Africa by detecting high-priority viruses, connecting public health stakeholders at all levels to real-time data, and empowering them to act on the data. Sentinel has been accelerated to address Covid-19 - having established robust diagnostic and sequencing capacity in Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and Senegal, and partnering with the Africa CDC to support response across West and Central Africa.
