“Using evidence to save lives”
Who We Are?

The Center for Common Disease Research in Africa and Asia (CEROCDAA) is a registered non-for-profit organization company in Canada. It is a science-based, data-driven, service organization that protects the public’s health. It was borne out of many emergence of new diseases, such as H1N1, COVID-19, and MPox. It was also conceptualized to innovate and address the many public health challenges, such as diabetes, cancer, and maternal mortality etc.

  • Public Health Research

  • Laboratory Systems and Networks

  • Information Systems

  • Emergency Preparedness and Response

  • Common Surveillance and Epidemiological Intelligence

  • Invitro Fertility Research and Development (IVF)

  • Training and capacity building

  • Public heath research and implementation science

  • Public Health Science and Surveillance

  • Research on Non-Infectious Diseases

  • Research of Infectious disease

  • Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services

  • Health Statistics

  • Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities

Why Focus on Africa and Asia

Burden of Common Diseases in Africa

Deaths in Africa fell largely in the WHO Group 1 category (death through communicable diseases, and perinatal, maternal and nutritional causes): 5.9-million deaths amounting to 61.7% of all deaths in sub-Saharan Africa. Group 2 death are as a result of non-communicable diseases, accounted for 2.7-million deaths or 28.6% of all deaths. This category includes heart disease (293,000 deaths), various forms of cancer (426,000) and diabetes (175,000). Group 3, deaths through injury, amounted for 939,000 deaths, or 9.8% of the total.

Burden of Common Diseases in Asia

Communicable diseases remain the leading cause of mortality and morbidity Asia Region:


There are common similarities in all the countries. Despite existing policies and programs to prevent and control communicable diseases, most countries have failed to eradicate vaccine-preventable diseases. Other factors include law of sustainable financing to scale up interventions, especially for emerging and re-emerging diseases that can produce epidemics and pandemics.
