Hosted by the WHO Regional Office for Africa (WHO AFRO), AHOP leverages existing national and regional collaborations to form a network of National Centres that currently include leading research institutions in Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda and Senegal.

Leon’s background is in international development and political science, and he holds a MSc in Development Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) at the University of London. His regional focus lies on Sub-Saharan Africa, and he has spent several years working in the Ugandan civil society sector on implementing community-based health programmes.

His main interest lies in the nexus between policy, research, and practice.
