Created in 2002, ELSA Platform is a pool of French NGOs involved in the fight against AIDS in Africa. In 2016, the members of the ELSA Platform are: the French Movement for Family Planning, Sidaction, SIS Association, Solidarité Sida and Solthis. This activity was supported by Sidaction.

Mapping support to AFD in the Gulf of Guinea
Nov / 2020 to Dec / 2021

The request for mapping support in the Gulf of Guinea was inspired by the work done in support of the AFD's Sahel regional team. In 2021, CartONG's support was mainly concentrated on the creation of AFD’s activities databases per country. In addition to this, different GIS resources and mapping training were provided to the GIS referents of each agency in order to make them autonomous in map production. To know more about this support, please read our 2020 Annual Report.

In 2022, support will probably continue to accompany the referents in their usage of databases and mapping.
