The Southern Africa Network for Biosciences (SANBio) is a shared biosciences research, development and innovation platform for working collaboratively to address some of Southern Africa's key biosciences issues in health and nutrition.

Since 2009, the BioFISA Programme, established between the Department of Science and Technology (DST) in South Africa and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland (MFA), has supported the NEPAD SANBio Network.
