African Research Excellence Fund

The Africa Research Excellence Fund (AREF) was established by the UK Medical Research Foundation to invest in talented, emerging researchers in Africa. They nurture African health research at its most vulnerable points by supporting and developing early-career researchers. They recognise that achieving better health in Africa needs more outstanding African-led health research, and better translation of that research into healthcare policy and practice. Their vision therefore is to grow the community of African researchers who will deliver excellent research in Africa, for Africa.
