The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) will culminate its 20th anniversary in 2023. For the last two decades, the Center has been at the forefront of groundbreaking research, tackling Sub-Saharan Africa’s most pressing development issues: health, education, population, aging, urbanization, and well-being. Currently, the Center is implementing over 100 projects in 35 African countries involving global, regional, and national stakeholders. In addition, we engage policy-makers to inform action, influence policy decisions, and collaborate on interventions. APHRC milestones over the last 20 years are numerous and include global recognition and awards.
