This year we are focusing on universities in 9 African countries : Burkina Faso, Ghana, Malawi, Namibia, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The primary objectives of the 2013 fellows program are :
To teach fellows to analyze DHS datasets, produce result tables, and conduct research with DHS data
To strengthen skills that fellows will use to integrate DHS data in teaching
To increase the ability of fellows to build the capacity for using DHS data at their home universities
