The Consortium for Advanced Research Training in Africa (CARTA) is a South-South partnership with South-North collaboration. CARTA is jointly-led by the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC), Kenya and the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) ,South Africa. It consists of nine African universities, four African research institutes and seven northern academic institutions.

CARTA has two primary objectives, namely: to strengthen research infrastructure and management capacity at African universities, and to support doctoral training through a model collaborative PhD program in population and public health. The objectives are designed to realize CARTA’s ultimate goal of building local research capacity to understand the determinants of health in Africa and develop effective interventions to improve health systems and outcomes.
