About this site…


This site presents publications coming out of research projects carried out by Valéry Ridde (1) and his colleagues. The purpose of this site is, on one hand, to share knowledge and ideas on different themes related to global health, and on the other, to give all researchers, students and professionals, as well as decision-makers and others involved in the healthcare system, free access to research results.

Grouped under five main themes—humanitarian aid, health policy analysis, equity of access to healthcare, social inequalities of health, and research methodology—these publications primarily present current projects and the results of action-research projects carried out in Africa to study and solve the issue of access to healthcare for those who are worst-off and most vulnerable.

Please contact us for any question or demand regarding our work on access to healthcare & program evaluation

…. thank you !
