COMDIS-HSD annual review highlights 2015 achievements19 January 2016
COMDIS-HSD, a Research Programme Consortium (RPC), which conducts operational research to improve health service delivery for underserved populations, released its annual review today. The review highlights the RPC’s achievements and successes of 2015. As one of eight RPC partners, Malaria Consortium’s work under COMDIS-HSD features prominently in the report. Specifically:
- Our study on community dialogues for the prevention and control of schistosomiasis in Mozambique was cited as an example of the RPC’s research on the group of 17 neglected tropical diseases that disproportionately affect low-resource communities.
- Malaria Consortium’s external relations work – for example a blog post on malaria in pregnancy – was cited as an example of the RPC’s focus on sharing what our work is about with external audiences.
- The review reports on Malaria Consortium’s attendance at the ResUp conference in Nairobi, as well as an academic writing workshop in Amsterdam, to highlight how the RPC aims to engage with academics and policymakers.
COMDIS-HSD is led by the Nuffield Centre for International Health & Development at the University of Leeds and receives funding from the UK government. Partner organisations are located around the world, including in Pakistan, China, Bangladesh, Nepal, Ghana and Swaziland.
