Our work centres around designing and conducting research, training and building the capacity of future researchers in the areas of public health.
Ours is to:
I. Strengthen the region’s capacity to evaluate the effectiveness of health promotion programmes and public health interventions.
II. Stimulate and strengthen research and knowledge transfer focused on health promotion in communities
III. Develop capacity by providing unique training and education opportunities in health promotion for researchers, students, community members, policy-makers, and practitioners at all levels.


Our approach to research work in public health is multi-disciplinary. We have re-conceptualise research to move from the traditional display of data to a more translational approach. We look at health issues from various dimensions, ranging from the determinants to policy issues. This way, we believe, is the best strategy towards addressing any health problem. This centre also serves as a platform for communication and exchange of knowledge regarding global health challenges.

CHESRAD is essentially a co-ordination centre. We bring together researchers and sponsors to work on projects using best practices.

We have a database of investigators (clinicians, statisticians, public health scientists, laboratory scientists, sociologists, policy experts) who work collaboratively on each project. These experts are drawn from the region as well as from our global network of collaborating institutions and organisations.

Our sponsors are local, regional and global non-profit and international organisations. Considering our location, we are capable of undertaking research into a wide range of health issues, communicable, non-communicable diseases and trauma.

In CHESRAD, we welcome research proposals. Likewise, we work on calls as well as bespoke projects. Do contact us if you or your organisations has a project you would like us to discuss.
