Health, Humanitarian Affairs & Social Development (HHS)
The Department of Social Affairs (DSA) works to promote the AU’s health, labour, employment, migration, social development, drug control, crime prevention, sport and cultural agenda.
The Division plays a leading role in policy development, advocacy, coordination, monitoring and evaluation on AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria and other infectious diseases.
The Division responds to vital generic health issues related to health policy and delivery systems, nutrition and other related public health issues and challenges that require a concerted and coordinated approach at a continental level.
The division of labour and employment focuses on the rights, labour standards, integrated employment policies and social security systems.
The Division works with Member States and development partners to create and strengthen social protection systems that aims at reducing social and economic risk and vulnerability.
The Africa Migration Report takes a distinctly regional approach to inform knowledge on migration in Africa.
