African Research Network

High-quality global health research from Africa

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are the first cause of death in Africa, yet 90% of funding allocated to medical research on the continent is still devoted to infectious diseases. It is time! Our unique inter-African network has been conducting research across 20 sub-Saharan African countries to dramatically advance knowledge on the prevalence and etiology of cardiovascular and other non-communicable diseases on the continent.

our mission

Accelerate the response to non-communicable diseases in Africa

The African Research Network is a growing community of cardiologists, epidemiologists, and pharmacists with extensive prior research experience in the fields of Rheumatic Heart disease, Sickle Cell disease, Quality of cardiovascular and anti-diabetic drugs, Severe Hypertension, or Acute Rheumatic Arthritis. We have been conducting thorough analysis to provide physicians with concise guidelines to better prevent, assess, and manage NCDs in Africa, and ultimately contribute to effective policy making in low- and middle- income countries.
