DELTAS Africa II Launch
The Science for Africa Foundation (SFA Foundation) launched the Developing Excellence in Leadership Training and Science in Africa (DELTAS Africa II) on 14th March 2023 in Nairobi Kenya. DELTAS Africa II brings together 14 grantees from across the continent including The Initiative to Develop African Research Leaders (IDeAL), based at the KEMRI – Wellcome Trust Research Programme.
The programme funded by Wellcome, and the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) in the UK is conceptualized as a health research leadership capacity-building programme integrating a major component of social sciences and humanities and climate sciences in a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to address a broad spectrum of Africa’s developmental challenges.
The programme will provide an enabling environment for the emergence of a new cohort of globally competitive African research scientists and leaders on the continent who will be trained through collaborative supervision and mentorship mostly at Masters, PhD, Post-Doctoral and Senior Research Fellows to address a broad spectrum of Africa’s health and other sustainable development challenges.
