African Health Observatory Platform

A regional partnership to promote evidence informed policy-making by supporting cross-country learning.

National Centres

The Platform's National Centers are focal points for research, analysis and knowledge brokering within each country and across the region.

Observatory Model

The Platform comprises a network of regional expertise based in national research centres technically coordinated by the WHO Regional Office for Africa. It is a novel approach, drawing from experience of existing Observatories including the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies.
