The organisation’s longevity, influence and esteem are some indication of the strategic success of the organisation to adapt to the changing landscape of Africa’s health needs and responses. The challenge is to sustain the achievements of the past in another period of change in global health
HEARD is seeking experienced research partners and fellows to support its first and second phase research in Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA).
