    Brain health, which determines brain capital, is central to achieving overall health and all sustainable development goals. However, the current DS-I Africa programs do not have a dedicated training program in brain health research to unravel its determinants, especially sociodemographic and lifestyle factors which play a major role elsewhere. GRASP is aimed at developing a sustainable cohort of African scientists to tackle the brain health burden in Africa by improving the data science skill of selected scholars to unravel its determinants using available large integrated datasets within DSI-A network.
