MERQ Global Coordination Center

What started with humble beginnings in an office in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia has currently transformed into a global operation with sister companies in USA, Rwanda and Australia, making MERQ the optimal gateway for global scientific research and project collaborations
The MERQ Global Coordination Center was established as a platform to synergize the business development and execution efforts of the country offices for efficient utilization of resources and maximal impact.

Composed of a high caliber multi-disciplinary team, the center aims to build on the distinct capabilities of the country offices and identify unique opportunities for growth and learning through collaboration, effective professional engagement and strategic discourse.

With the human resources, technical capacity, and physical infrastructure capability that we have built over the last eight years, we believe we have become a pragmatic choice for research, implementation, capacity building, quality improvement and program evaluations in Africa.
