Here we attempt to bring together all the information, resources and updates being provided by all the African networks and pan-African organisations who work in health research. The aim is to make it as easy as possible to find the right information, support and guidance, by connecting all the African initiatives together and making all the sources of reliable information and tools both accessible and discoverable.
