Training workshop on implementation research for effective access to and delivery of health technologies

The UNICEF/UNDP/World Bank/WHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) invites applications from research teams in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to participate in a 5-day consultative workshop on implementation research for effective access and delivery of health technologies.

The workshop is organized under the auspices of the Access and Delivery Partnership which aims at accelerating access and delivery of new health technologies for tuberculosis (TB), malaria and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), in support of efforts of the Member States of the United Nations to attain universal health coverage (UHC).

Between 7 and 9 research teams (of three members each) comprised of implementers (from ministries of health / drug regulatory agencies / supply chain systems) and researchers from countries in the WHO African Region, will be selected and invited for the workshop.

Research teams will be supported to participate in one of two regional workshops planned for 9 – 13 December 2019 in West Africa (venue to be decided) for West and Central Africa, and 10 – 14 February 2020 in Arusha, the United Republic of Tanzania, for East and Southern Africa.
