For several decades, research efforts in Sub-Saharan Africa have focused mainly on Infectious diseases. However, Chronic diseases, both Communicable and Non-Communicable and Injuries now represent; according to WHO and the World Bank, the main causes of morbidity and mortality that can strain the health budgets of Developing Countries and undermine economic development efforts. The determinants of the increase in Chronic diseases such as Diabetes and Cardiovascular diseases, Cancers and Trauma (mainly related to road insecurity) remain poorly known in our environment. Therefore, our main research areas are primarily:

NCDs Prevention and Management

The Prevention and Management of chronic Non-Communicable Diseases; notably Diabetes and Cervical cancer.

Maternal, Child & Adolescent Health

Maternal, Child and Adolescent health with a specific focus on Nutrition and the first 1000 days.

Health policy and translational research

We place particular emphasis on good ethical practices and good governance.
