AfroPHC Systems Research

AfroPHC is setting up a Primary Health Care (PHC) Systems Research Group as a transdisciplinary group addressing African PHC System issues. We plan to meet 1-3 pm CAT on the 1st Tuesday of every month. The objectives of the group are:

  • To develop an understanding of key documents affecting PHC systems
  • To share relevant published research on PHC systems in Africa
  • To share and review research work in progress on PHC systems in Africa
  • To mentor master’s researchers
  • To network for collaborative research projects.

The monthly two-hour meeting will mainly review key PHC systems documents, share African PHC System published by group members and present/review research work in progress on PHC systems in Africa. Register below to join us.
