Africa Evidence Network: Malawi Branch Launch

The Malawi branch of the Africa Evidence Network (AEN) was officially launched this month. The launch comes in partnership with the UJ-BCURE Malawi programme, a DFID-funded development programme which aims to build capacity in evidence-informed decision making among senior policymakers and technical staff. AEN – a network of researchers, practitioners and policy-makers from universities, NGOs and governments – is open to anyone who works in Africa and is interested in evidence, its production and use in decision-making. The AEN branch in Malawi is growing quickly with members from government, research institutes and the private sector, and new members are invited to contact cfar@uj.ac.za
