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. 

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.

CARTA coordinates and funds a vast amount of PhD scholarships. They further offer 

 

Tasks: Research, Capacity Building, Training, South-South Relations, North-South Relations

Target: PhD Students, Supervisors, Management, Academic Staff

PhD Fellowships

CARTA offers an innovative model for doctoral training in sub-Saharan Africa to strengthen the capacity of participating institutions to conduct and lead internationally-competitive research.

The multi-disciplinary CARTA program is open to staff members from participating institutions who are interested in conducting their PhD research on topics relevant to the broad fields of public and population health. Applications are solicited from disciplines, such as public health, demography, anthropology, economics, among others, as long as the research question aims to contribute to public and population health issues.

Specifically, CARTA funds candidates who will be future leaders in their institutions; that is, young, capable, and committed individuals who, in time, will ensure that their universities will be the institutions of choice for future generations of academics and university administrators wishing to make a positive impact on public and population health in Africa.

Joint Advanced Seminars

Central to the training of fellows in the CARTA program is a series of residential Joint Advanced Seminars (JAS). Residential training offers an advantage for the program in that students will be able to focus fully on specific program tasks, learn collaboratively, interact with local and international facilitators, and develop and consolidate professional networks.
The JAS are offered about once each year for four years to each cohort, and are designed to build skills and conceptual depth from year to year. Each JAS runs for 3 to 4 weeks.
