Productive Global Health Research from Africa: It Takes More

Future Health Systems

Waiswa, P. (2015), Productive Global Health Research from Africa: It Takes More. International Journal of Public Health. doi 10.1007/s00038-015-0725-4

In this editorial, part of the International Journal of Public Health special issue "Driving the Best Science to Meet Global Health Challenges", Peter Waiswa, Makerere University School of Public Health, Uganda, says that without significant and sustained building of African research capacity, progress towards achieving development goals and overcoming health challenges will be difficult.
