Our Members

Our network of members include researchers, practitioners and policy-makers from universities, NGOs and governments that have an interest in evidence-informed decision-making.
The Network is mostly made up of members from South Africa and Malawi, these being the countries in which the Network has officially been launched. Members from other African countries such as Zimbabwe, Ghana, Uganda, Egypt, Cameroon, Ethiopia and Sri Lanka are also part of the network. We also have membership from individuals and organisations from the UK, Germany, USA, Australia and Canada who are operating in Africa.

The Network is open to anyone who works in Africa and is interested in evidence, its production and use in decision-making.
