Session presented on Sunday, July 24, 2016: Sustained research outputs have been a challenge for researchers in nursing across Africa. A study conducted by Sun, Doorn, Larson, Klopper, Malata, Owina et al (2014/5) confirms the low outputs of clinical research across Africa. Several research capacity programmes were developed and implemented to build research capacity at various levels, i.e. novice researcher development programme, pre-doctoral programme, post-doctoral programme. The establishment of doctoral programmes have also contributed to attract researchers. During this session these programmes will be shared and the successes achieved will be highlighted.
