[Perspectives] Catherine Kyobutungi: leading African health research capacity

Catherine Kyobutungi leads an organisation with a broad mandate to generate evidence and strengthen research capacity in Africa. As Executive Director of the Nairobi-based African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) since Oct 1, 2017, she’s clear about her mission: “For me the important thing is that we are doing research not for the sake of research, but to generate policy-relevant evidence while building credible profiles to be able to speak and be listened to where it matters. So that people making policy decisions have the best evidence available to them and they think about it and they look for it, and the evidence actually goes into policies.” Ibrahim Abubakar, Director of University College London’s Institute for Global Health, UK, welcomes her appointment.
