R4D International was founded by public health professionals working in Sub-Saharan Africa and this after realizing that a
lot is known from health research, but yet very little research results are translated into practices that improve the wellbeing
of the populations in this part of the world.
Viewing this know-do-gap in health research as a critical impediment to the value of research and the development of local
communities, these professionals created R4D International with the vision to facilitate translation of research results into
practices in developing countries.
