The objective of the survey is to analyse the current requirements and needs that academic and research groups have in health and health informatics research.

The data obtained from this survey will be used to define strategies and future activities for these sectors. Based on the responses to this survey combined with an analysis of relevant literature, a concrete conception would be formulated as a foundation for future European activities in Africa.
