Reason for Existing

The H3D Foundation was established in 2019 to create an absorptive capacity for securing, building and retaining skilled African scientists within innovative R&D. This will help to ensure the skills that Africa will need to move into the next decade as it seeks to become more self-reliant and to become a global player in innovative pharmaceutical R&D. The H3D Foundation will also be a convening platform and credible voice for evidence-based global health views aimed partly at countering misinformation particularly around research and science in Africa and partly at bridging the gap between laboratory and clinical activities as well as innovation and access in Africa.
