Welcome to the Regional Institute for Population Studies. I am privileged to have been given the opportunity to move the Institute to even greater heights from the status it is currently enjoying. As an Institution that prides itself on training top-notch population scientists with a strong research base we have emerged as a regional icon.
Established in 1972, we have since trained more than 600 demographers and currently expanding our original mandate by venturing into a wide array of population related issues. I trust you will make time to visit our portal to familiarize yourself with what we do.
