EquitAble is a four-year collaborative research project comprised of researchers from Ireland, Norway, Sudan, Namibia, Malawi and South Africa. The project has produced empirical knowledge on access to health care for vulnerable people in resource poor settings in Africa. EquitAble brings together several teams comprised of both leading and upcoming researchers, from two European and four African countries.

This strong consortium, with established project management and research credentials, presents a valuable opportunity to provide data to inform crucial policy decisions, as well as building research capacity in this area. EquitAble undertook policy analysis, intensive ethnographic analysis, and extensive household surveys across Namibia, Malawi, South Africa, and Sudan.
