Project Synopsis

Simplify is a multi-purpose project that aims to translate health research literature into simple, easy-to-understand and context-specific information, to increase population knowledge of common diseases in Africa, and understanding of their implications to health. 


The project has four main objectives:


- To help patients understand more about their health 

- To facilitate Doctor-patient communication

- To empower patients to make healthier choices 

- To increase patient compliance with health provider recommendations

The Simplify project targets multiple populations in the African population, primarily patients and health providers. The project also provides research and development opportunities for African academics.

The development of this project was informed by background findings from surveys carried out with Medical Doctors and patients from various African countries.
