ANARA is a research network and registry. Our network is wide and inclusive. All ART centres in all African countries are invited to belong to ANARA. ANARA is led by a network and registry Director and administered by a small operational team. Data Directors are nominated by countries and sub-regions to facilitate data collection and other network activities. International and regional advisors, who include representatives from regional and world registries as well as regional African fertility societies, ensure high level input.

This structure facilitates reach, representation, and international connectivity while maintaining core consistency and protection of data integrity.
