I’m very pleased to present the 2017 research outputs of ANCR members. We have 19 publications, masters or doctoral dissertations and conference papers, coming from Ethiopia, Ghana, South Africa and Zimbabwe. This is a great accomplishment, increasing the Africa footprint in international research on care-leaving.
