APHRC is committed to generating an Africa-led and Africa-owned body of evidence to inform decision making for an effective and sustainable response to the most critical challenges facing the continent.
POLICY ENGAGEMENT COMMUNICATION
Since its inception in 2001, the APHRC’s web-based platform has published metadata, documentation, and shared qualitative and quantitative datasets from research studies by the Center.The datasets are freely available to all partners, researchers, academicians, and post-graduate students for their theses-related works in widely used and easily convertible formats such as Stata and SPSS.
Users can go through the platform, review the studies and decide to request datasets. They will have to log in (using their username and password if already registered) or register online before submitting any data request. Once logged in, users will be asked to fill in the data request form online. After a request is submitted, a confirmation email will be sent to the user. Data requests will be handled by APHRC within a maximum of ten working days, after which a notification email will be sent to the user. If the request is approved, the email will provide instructions on how to download the requested datasets at no cost.
