Malawi: Launch of national health research agenda

This will guide Malawi’s research activities, policymaking and health service delivery over the next five years. It will move research away from being externally driven to focus on locally relevant priorities.

“Research priorities identified in the agenda include: communicable diseases, HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, pneumonia, diarrhoeal diseases and neglected tropical diseases including schistosomiasis, onchocerciasis, lyphatic filariasis, trachoma and soil-transmitted heminth infections.”

See SciDev Net for futher information.
