Framework to Guide the Implementation of Strategic Initiatives and Innovation at the APHRC


The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) is driven by its mission to generate scientific evidence aligned to local and international development agendas, strengthen research and related capacity in the African research and development (R&D) ecosystem, and engage policy to inform action on health and development. In line with this, APHRC recognizes the need to strengthen key strategic initiatives such as the ideation process, the strategic innovation pipeline, and outcomes of the signature issues identified by research themes. Other strategic initiatives may include seed grants, fellowships, and those with a career strengthening focus. The aim of this Framework is therefore to outline a structure through which support to develop long-term ideas and programs for sustained policy engagement at APHRC can be provided.
