CARTA’s vision is to be the catalyst for the emergence of a vibrant African academy able to lead world-class multidisciplinary research that makes a positive impact on population and public health. To do this, the CARTA PhD training program has research publication as one of the critical output for the CARTA fellows.

During the fellowship period, the fellows are usually taken through rigorous writing process and this has yielded positive results. The fellows collectively have published over 210 papers in peer reviewed high impact journals and continuously thrive to do their best.
