Research & Publications

The Center has carried out several awareness campaigns through public lectures, publications, television and radio programs. It is worthy of note that from 2013 to 2018 the Center has commemorated the Day of the African child, with a public lecture inviting members of the general public including over 100 school children each time. The Center now has 54 research projects carried out from eight countries in sub-Saharan African countries and 4 publications including five colorful brochures, which provide information about the Center’s activities and a summary of the research project carried out by each of the students showcasing the various interventional researches that should inform policy.
