Improving the Evidence Base on Aflatoxin Contamination and Exposure in Africa: Strengthening the Agriculture-Nutrition Nexus - By Sheila Okoth

This report reveals that substantial knowledge is available about the aflatoxin challenge that plagues African farmers, other agri-entrepreneurs, and governments. Commissioned by the ACP-EU Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) in collaboration with
the African Union Commission - Partnership for Aflatoxin Control in Africa (PACA), this literature review reveals that a wide range of commodities that are traded nationally, regionally and internationally are contaminated by aflatoxins. African citizens and economies are
negatively impacted as a result.

Tanzania Supplemental Aflatoxin Situational Analysis 2016
2016

This 2016 report supplements the report released by the Abt Associates in 2013 on the Country and Economic Assessment for Aflatoxins in Tanzania. The supplemental report, provides extensive information on knowledge and awareness of aflatoxins among Tanzanians as well as information on aflatoxin contamination for maize, groundnuts, and rice. The report includes a review of existing food safety policies and those being developed, to identify gaps that could be addressed to strengthen the food safety system of Tanzania. In addition, a health and economic impact analysis for aflatoxins, based on aflatoxin biomarker data was done. The Tanzania Food Security Investment Plan (TAFSIP) document was reviewed to identify areas into which aflatoxin measures could be mainstreamed. The situation analysis and action planning was conducted in consultation with several key stakeholders including the government line ministries, regional economic communities (RECs), donors and the private sector.
