The Critical Institute
102 Suite 3
St. Catherine Street
Attard ATD2605
Malta, EU

The Critical Institute is a non-profit organisation set up and run by academics and activist practitioners. It offers a democratic and interdisciplinary platform to debate, learn and collaborate on world class critical research, teaching and practice. We engage in educational practice that is not limited to the acquisition of skills and knowledge, but one that actively questions and confronts inequalities and oppression- knowledge that has a transformative agenda.

It is especially "committed to linking research and practice as a project of praxis, motivated by real needs, dedicated to social justice through social and political change ; and seeks to achieve real and lasting ‘impact’ determined by real people on their own terms and not by research councils, universities, policy makers or politicians as we strengthen efforts at decolonizing knowledge, research and practice".

Nairobi

AfriAfya, African Network for Health Knowledge Management and Communication, is exploring use of modern information and communication technologies for community health among rural poor. AfriAfya collects, sorts and disseminates information to local change agents trained to combine modern and traditional means of spreading information ‘beyond the computer’ to their communities for social transformation. AfriAfya sees communication as a two-way process. It has demonstrated methods of applying ICTs, operated by simply educated community members, to yield health and other benefits. Improved facility performance, discussions within communities of sensitive HIV/AIDS issues, increased requests for voluntary counselling and testing, and condom uptake indicate effect. The change agents have described their involvement in AfriAfya as having changed their lives, and made it easier for them to serve their communities. The system used by AfriAfya can be applied for other types of development information
