African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) is a leading pan-African research institution headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, that conducts high quality policy-relevant research on population, health, education, urbanization and related development issues across Africa. APHRC actively engages policymakers and other key stakeholders to achieve measurable policy impacts and ensure decision making across the continent is informed by rigorous evidence-based research.
APHRC is one of three project partners in Eastern Africa working with Transform Nutrition and the Agriculture for Nutrition and Health program of the CGIAR. They are working with us on a short study Social Return on Investment –Home Based Nutritional Counselling Intervention in Urban Poor Settings, Nairobi, Kenya which will add to the evidence base on nutrition-relevant policy and action in Eastern Africa.
Egerton University, Kenya is the oldest institution of higher learning in Kenya. It was founded as a Farm School in 1939 by Lord Maurice Egerton of Tatton, a British national who settled in Kenya in the 1920s. The University has undertaken a number of major research projects and established a series of local and international partnerships and linkages in research, teaching, and industry.
Following a call for proposals by Transform nutrition and Agriculture for Nutrition and Health in 2014 for nutrition-relevant policy and action in Eastern Africa, Egerton University has been working on a project Agrobiodiversity and dietary diversity for improved nutritional status of mother-infant diets in Rongai sub-county, Kenya.
