National Phytotherapeutics Research Centre (NPRC)

In line with the Kenya Government’s policy priorities in Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) this project was funded by the National Research Fund to support the establishment of the National Phytotherapeutics Research, Upscaling and Quality Assurance (NaPRUQA) Centre. The Centre will focus on phytotherapeutics (products from plants that have health benefits) such as nutraceuticals (nutritious products that have health benefits) for the management of nutrition disorders among children, people living with HIV-AIDS, expectant mothers, and persons in emergency conditions such as refugees, victims of natural disasters, among others.
