Since 2008, we have been improving local community focused research capacity in Africa through small locally driven multidisciplinary health research teams developing research projects to improve health outcomes. Now we are taking all we have learned in Africa to grow local community focused research capacity in Nova Scotia so local multidisciplinary teams can find local solutions to community health problems that can work and fit the local resources, the context and culture.
To become globally recognized pioneers in training, mentoring, and support of multidisciplinary community focused health research with a commitment to positive societal change.
