Regional initiatives have resulted in facilities for West (satellite stations in Liberia and Burkina Faso), Central (satellite station in Cameroon) and East Africa (reference laboratory in Kenya and satellite station in Ethiopia). The programme has a continental coverage. It works at national level with AU Member States.

For the first result on bee health facilities for innovative technologies and provision of pests risk analysis baselines and benchmarks established and the second result on validated bee disease and pest management modules with efficient field based diagnostic tools developed, the project is using several sites in 22 locations to record the status of African bee health in bee colonies in 6 countries in relation to vegetation, pollen and species diversity, to collect data for developing future prediction models. These locations are in the participating countries (Kenya, Ethiopia, Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Liberia and Madagascar).
