Most universities and research institutions in sub-Saharan Africa are limited by inadequate resources and research expertise. The few appropriately qualified academics have a large teaching workload (in addition to a clinical workload in the case of clinicians). Additionally, young researchers who take up training opportunities overseas rarely return home because of a scarcity of career opportunities and incentives. The Southern Africa Consortium for Research Excellence (SACORE) aims to contribute to reversing this trend by establishing a vibrant environment to support training and research in southern Africa.
