About the StAAR Health Network

The St Andrews Africa Research (StAAR) health network has a mission of using interdisciplinary approaches to address interactable global health challenges. The network will offer training to increase south-south data analysis and research dissemination skills and build a digital resource centre hosting the network’s outputs and training tools. We will conduct research on the impact of COVID-19 on access and use of antibiotics and generate evidence for health policy to mitigate the effects. Last but not least, we will expand the implementation of the network’s TB diagnostic tools, and through knowledge exchange raise awareness about the importance of diagnostics as tools for ensuring reasonable use of medicines and informing individual public health responsibility of protecting others from exposure to contagious diseases. This website hosts the research tools and methodologies generated by project partners of the St Andrews Africa Research (StAAR) health network.
