Introduction to Science Resources Africa

Science Resources Africa is a new initiative to enhance the availability of scientific resources to the African Community. The economic and social development of sub-Saharan Africa could be significantly enhanced with a continuous and sustained build of capacity in science and technology in the communities.

This is an absolute necessity if Sub-Saharan Africa is to play a pivotal role in intensifying research efforts to combat diseases that plague the region and in fostering a way ahead in the economic development of affected communities. One way to achieve this is to develop capacity in science and technology by promoting cutting edge science education amongst the youth of those communities.

Goals of Science Resources Africa

1.    Capacity build of Science and Technology in sub-Saharan Africa
2.    Effective Science Communication within the African community
3.    Engaging science in the community
