ESE:O congratulates the African Population and Health Research Center (APHC) on being ranked as one of the world’s leading think tanks and research institutions in global health.
APHRC was one of just two African institutions considered to have influenced debate on Global Health Policy, according to a review carried out by the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program of the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania and published on 26 January. APHRC was ranked as the top African think tank for Domestic Health Policy.
“Working with APHRC researchers over the last seven years, we know the tremendous value of their work at the cutting edge of health research and advocacy in Africa,” said Soledad Falabella, ESE:O’s director.
Since 2011 ESE:O has worked closely with APHRC’s flagship research training initiative, CARTA (the Consortium for Advanced Research Training in Africa), providing workshops on academic writing to CARTA grantees. At the last count, CARTA and ESE:O trained fellows had published 400 articles in peer-reviewed journals (http://cartafrica.org/)
ESE:O instructors have also participated in scientific writing workshops organized by APHRC for its African Doctoral Dissertation Research Fellowship (ADDRF) program.
