This webinar, hosted by the African Continental Association for Food Protection (ACAFP) <>, will provide an overview of ongoing programs within the Health and Environmental Sciences Institute (HESI) <> and the Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (JIFSAN) <>.  Both organizations are involved in risk assessment and analysis approaches to improve food safety.

The webinar will be co-presented by *Dr. Clare Narrod* (Director, Risk Analysis / Impact Evaluation Programs, JIFSAN) and *Dr. Michelle Embry* (Deputy Director, HESI).




The webinar will start by providing context and the rationale behind the risk analysis process that is required by many countries for protecting the food supply.  It will then briefly describe the courses covered in the JIFSAN Risk Analysis Training program which is aimed at providing the tools to professionals working to ensure food safety, animal and plant health in

their own countries.   It then will provide an example that is used to

explain the results to risk managers using the HESI Risk Assessment in the 21st Century (RISK21) framework and provide several relevant examples of its use including a brief tutorial on the web-based visualization tool.
