AFIDEP is an African-led, regional non-profit policy think tank that seeks to bridge the gaps between development research, policy, and practice in Africa. Our vision is to make research evidence matter in African-driven development by ensuring that African governments and other development actors have access to and consider the most relevant and robust evidence whenever they make decisions to improve policies and interventions chart the directions that countries should take to spur rapid, inclusive, and sustainable socio-economic development. Our work seeks to strengthen leadership and capacities for evidence informed policy-making and fortify the practical evidence and technical assistance that decision-makers use to enable African countries move beyond rhetoric to action. Our current areas of focus are population change and sustainable development, education, skills development, and health system strengthening with a focus on reproductive, maternal, child, and adolescent health.
