July 1, 2022

The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) has signed an MoU with the Nairobi Metropolitan Services on population and health research to advance the quality of life for the residents of Nairobi City County.

The MoU will provide a framework for cooperation within which NMS and APHRC shall collaborate on research of matters of common interest in the health sector and disseminate insights from such research.

The objectives of the MOU are:

  1. Design, develop and implement projects of common interest in the health sector.
  2. Determine the specific Terms of Reference for any future joint projects.
  3. Set up commissions, committees, or other technical or advisory bodies, on terms and conditions mutually agreed upon by the parties.

APHRC will work with NMS to identify research capacity needs and, where possible, support research capacity-building initiatives of its key staff in the design, conduct, analysis, and interpretation of research.

APHRC and NMS will undertake joint research projects involving cooperation in all or specified activities within the design, development, and implementation phase of such projects.


The African Population and Health Research Center is a premier research-to-policy institution, generating evidence, strengthening research and related capacity in the African research and development ecosystem, and engaging policy to inform action on health and development. 

Headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, and with a West Africa Regional Office (WARO) in Dakar, Senegal, our teams orient their research agendas according to global and continental development priorities, driven by the belief that Africa and African-generated evidence must be at the forefront of decisions supporting improved growth and development.
