Welcome to the Forensic DNA Policy Board for Africa! Our mission is to draft a comprehensive framework for DNA legislation to be adopted by African countries seeking to develop DNA policies. Our goal is to enhance the utilisation of forensic DNA profiling in their respective criminal justice systems and for humanitarian purposes.
JOIN THE CONVERSATION
The Board has convened to draft generic DNA policy, legal, and regulatory frameworks to inform DNA legislation across Africa. By offering a regulatory foundation, the Board aims to empower African countries to develop their own DNA policies, laws, and regulations. This will enhance the use of forensic DNA in their criminal justice systems and humanitarian initiatives.
Our Board Members originate from diverse regions across Africa and possess a wide range of forensic expertise and experience to effectively achieve the stated objectives of the Board.
