APHRC is a non-profit organization committed to conducting high-quality, policy-relevant research on the population and health-related issues facing sub-Saharan Africa in the next century. The Center generates and supports the use of evidence for meaningful action to improve the lives of all Africans through three integrated programmatic divisions: research that emphasizes health and wellbeing; research capacity strengthening to deepen the skills of African scholars working on the continent; and policy engagement and communications to support greater influence of evidence in policy and decision-making across sub-Saharan Africa. The research generation and synthesis focus on: development; education and youth empowerment; health and systems for health; population dynamics; maternal and child wellbeing and urbanization in Africa. The Center provides research fellowships for graduate and post-doctoral students.
The publications section has documents on APHRC ‘s thematic areas. The resources available include research publications on health and health systems, infectious and non-infectious diseases as well as working papers, policy briefs, multi-media, newsletters, and much more.
