The African Population and Health Research Centre (APHRC) is an African led and African based international research Institute engaged in interdisciplinary and evidence based policy research. Our researchers address some of the most important issues and challenges facing Africa today in areas such as education, health, population, urbanization and wellbeing. We engage with policy makers in the region to disseminate our research findings and influence change affecting the quality of life in Africa. We also support doctoral level training in Africa to strengthen research capacity in the region. The Centre has over 40 research staff trained in the fields of anthropology, demography, economics, psychology, education, sociology, public health, medicine and statistics.
