The Center has carried out several awareness campaigns through public lectures, publications, television and radio programs. It is worthy of note that in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 the Center 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 43 research projects carried out from five countries in sub-Saharan African countries and 4 publications including three 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.
