Foundational Documents

The Institute has developed two reports for public use to provide valuable information to all internal and external stakeholders.

1. Harnessing AKU's Capacities: This report provides a background information on the Institute, AKU's work history in relevant thematic areas, and our findings from AKU wide consultations and surveys conducted to establish the Institute. 

2. Working Directories of Potential Partners and Funders: Working on pressing global health challenges requires interdisciplinary and collaborative work. This report is supported by two directories to support outreach and engagement to relevant partners and funders.

The directories are "living documents" and if you have any comments or suggestions, please contact us so we can improve our database.
