Africa Centre for Evidence
Working together to make evidence-informed decision-making a reality
Our vision is to reduce poverty and inequality in our region by increasing the production and application of research evidence that is both useful and used.
The goals of our Centre are to:
Produce useful research evidence to inform policy and practice across the region
Support the production of high quality systematic reviews and evidence syntheses by others
Support the use of research evidence amongst decision-makers
Ensure that systematic review and evidence synthesis design and methods are fully responsive to the contexts and needs of research producers and users in Africa, and
Build strategic local, national, regional and international partnerships with the shared vision of ensuring research is high quality, useful and used.
We are an international multi-disciplinary team, based at the University of Johannesburg, working across the continent. We have a track record for high quality collaborative work with strong partnerships with governments, universities and NGOs. Visit our official website https://africacentreforevidence.org/ for more information. Amongst other initiatives, we provide the secretariat to the
Africa Evidence Network.
