Research Locations

Since its inception, SHARE has focused its activities in Bangladesh, India Malawi, and Tanzania. During this time we worked closely with national sector partners to define research priorities, generate rigorous and relevant applied research, and enhance the uptake of new and existing research. SHARE also supported specific research projects in several other countries including: Ghana, Mali, Namibia, Nepal, Thailand, The Gambia, Uganda, and Zimbabwe.

From 2015, SHARE will concentrate its activities in sub-Saharan Africa, building on the foundations laid in Malawi and Tanzania to date, and drawing on new strategic partnerships in Kenya and Zambia.
