As you know, the successful implementation of aflatoxin control and management requires the engagement and dedication of many individuals, institutions, systems.

It is against this backdrop that PACA would like to request the community to identify and nominate exceptional individuals, institutions or other, who have contributed significantly to the aflatoxin control cause in Africa in the following categories: 

  • ​Research and Technology 
  • Policy and creation of an enabling enviornment 
  • Advocacy and communication 
  • Resource Mobilization 
  • Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs)​
