Radiation safety is a critical component in pediatric imaging. In Africa, radiation-safety is championed by the AFROSAFE campaign under the umbrella of the African Society of Radiology (ASR). AFROSAFE was launched on 17<sup>th</sup> February, 2015 during the 8<sup>th</sup> biennial Pan African Congress of Radiology and Imaging (PACORI) which was held in Nairobi, Kenya.
