WHAT WE DO

OUR PROGRAMMES

The SFA Foundation takes a holistic approach to science. Our programmatic initiatives are crafted to cater to the entire science ecosystem and span across the value chain from early discovery sciences to translation sciences and targeted cross-cutting gaps.

DELTAS Africa

 

The Developing Excellence in Leadership, Training and Science in Africa (DELTAS Africa) supports the development of world-class researchers and scientific leaders in Africa conducting cutting-edge, high-quality science to impact policy and practice in Africa.

Grand Challenges Africa

 

Grand Challenges Africa (GC Africa) supports the creation of extraordinary innovations that address health and developmental challenges in Africa. The programme awards seed and scale up grants to the continent’s most impressive solutions. It supports big, bold impactful innovative ideas that have a potential for scale and sustainability

Human Heredity & Health in Africa

 

The Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) supports population-based studies that use genetic, clinical and epidemiological tools to better understand how the interplay between human genes and the environment influence disease susceptibility, pathogenesis and prevention with the goal of improving the health of African populations.

Clinical Trials Community

 

Grand Challenges Africa (GC Africa) supports the creation of extraordinary innovations that address health and developmental challenges in Africa. The programme awards seed and scale up grants to the continent’s most impressive solutions. It supports big, bold impactful innovative ideas that have a potential for scale and sustainability

Open Research Africa

 

The Science for Africa Foundation community is dedicated to the principles of FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable) publishing. Open Research Africa (ORA), a partnership of SFA and F1000, offers researchers the opportunity to share their findings on a rapid, peer-reviewed, indexed and FAIR platform.
