WHO WE ARE
WARN/CARN-TB is the network of National Tuberculosis Programmes (NTPs) in West and Central Africa.
It was created in June 2015 in Cotonou (Benin) under the name WARN-TB (West African Regional Network for Tuberculosis control). It was at that time a group of 15 ECOWAS countries in addition to Mauritania, making a total of 16 countries.
In 2018, based on the results obtained by the WARN-TB, the 11 Central African countries decided to join this momentum and set up the network of Central African countries. Thus, CARN-TB (Central African Regional Network for Tuberculosis control) was born in November 2018 in Cotonou.
The two networks merged and are now known as WARN/CARN-TB.
