Founded in 2004 as a standby army in line with the growing terrorism threats in the region, EASF comprises Burundi, Comoros, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, Sudan and Uganda.

Initially, it was formed as a single military component, the Eastern Africa Standby Brigade, but has since grown to include police and civilians hence the change of name.
