Data: Advanced research infrastructures

Integrating and promoting the multi-disciplinary use of longitudinal data from advanced health, socio-demographic and environmental research infrastructures for research and sustainable development.

The long-term research endeavours by Wits in the rural communities of Bushbuckridge have been enabled by advanced research infrastructures such as the Agincourt Health and Socio-demographic Surveillance System.

The collection of diverse high-quality longitudinal datasets in a defined rural South African footprint constitutes an exceptional resource for exploring patterns and relationships between variables in a former-Apartheid homeland socio-ecological system.
