Evidence generation to inform policy is at the heart of the Partnership for Aflatoxin Control in Africa (PACA) of the African Union Commission. As a result, PACA has commissioned studies at the regional level both in the COMESA and ECOWAS region to assess aflatoxin control capacities at the country level. This study, focusing on the ECOWAS region, assesses the food safety systems, related policies and regulations, as well as human and laboratory capacities in aflatoxin control in ECOWAS Member States.
