Thank you for being part of the AfroPHC research mentorship programme.
We have 17 concept notes that have been submitted by the end of July. See them all listed here https://afrophc.org/afrophc-systems-research/ Some supervisors have reached out to these researchers. If you are interested in supervising a researcher and see an interesting concept note then reach out to the researcher by email (as listed there) to indicate your willingness to supervise the researcher in their endeavour.
We hope researchers will use the monthly meetings organised by Senkyire to attend, and present their research ideas and find a supervisor for themselves, even if you have not submitted a concept note ( for November meeting). Unfortunately this matching process takes a lot of organisation and we can do
no more than this. Reach out to Senkyire and the AfroPHC research team if you would like further assistance especially if you would like to present your research at the meetings.
