About us

AFRITAC East is a collaborative venture between the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the recipient countries, and bilateral and multilateral development partners. It originated from the IMF's response to African leaders call on the international community to increase technical assistance (TA) to Africa and focus it more sharply on capacity building. AFRITAC East provides TA and training to Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania (including Zanzibar), and Uganda.


Working with member countries and donor partners to help build local capacities for sound economic and financial management within the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) framework.



Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of East African member countries to formulate and implement their own growth-oriented, poverty-reducing policies, including through the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) and Millennium Development Goals processes.
