AFRA enjoys the confidence of several partners including the African Union (AU), the OPEC Fund, Spain, France, the USA, the IAEA, UN-Aids, ESTRO, ISRO and more recently the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (Nepad). The AU and AFRA share many common interests and therefore implement joint activities. The interest of the second group of partners (UN-Aids, ESTRO, ISRO) is of scientific nature and consists of exchanging scientific information, expertise and protocols as well as scientific materials. The third group of partners represents the financial sources of AFRA (IAEA, France, OPEC Fund, Spain, USA). They provide about 80% of the total annual budget of the programme.
