Ross fund portfolio – Implementation research into infectious diseases

UK Department for International Development

This programme in the Ross Fund Portfolio (which focusses on neglected tropical diseases, diseases of emerging resistance and diseases of epidemic potential) aims to build the evidence based on effective interventions and delivery mechanisms to tackle infectious diseases in low and middle income countries. The research programmes will take an integrated and multi-disciplinary approach to help DFID and the development community better understand what works most effectively to tackle infectious diseases, building upon the existing evidence base. The research addresses a number of core themes, including delivery through health systems, value for money of interventions, vulnerable groups, gender and building evidence on interventions in a range of contexts including (but not limited to) fragile and conflict affected states.

Disability Inclusive Development Programme

UK Department for International Development

This programme will deliver a set of interventions to support people with disabilities in a number of developing countries. The programme will deliver tangible outcomes for people with disabilities including access to education, jobs, healthcare and reduced stigma and discrimination and encourage global actors to prioritise the issue. The programme will also test innovative approaches to disability inclusion and generate high quality research to fill gaps and discover what works in this under-resourced area. A lack of attention and funding has severely limited evidence of what works to deliver inclusion in international development for approximately 800 million people with disabilities in developing countries. Interventions that work will be scaled up, widening their reach, and new learning and evidence shared across the global development community and national governments.

Development of an intervention to support reproductive health of women after seeking medical abortion in Cambodia

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

The aims of this partnership are to: 1. Develop a long-term research collaboration between the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in field of mobile/digital health in LMICs, particularly in Southeast Asia. The goal of the partnership is to integrate findings, methods, and research projects from the public health field, the area of focus of LSHTM, with the regional, linguistic, and cultural expertise of SOAS. This grant would allow the two institutions to start a joint exploratory research project to test, in the field, how to integrate respective methods and perspectives while focusing on a specific research question. 2. Develop a joint research project between LSHTM and SOAS to study reproductive health after abortion and mobile phone use among factory workers in Cambodia from a medical, cultural, and information-sharing practices perspectives. The project responds to the problem of a decrease in interdisciplinary collaboration particularly evident in health-related research by bringing together three different approaches to researching health issues in LMICs: 1. public healthcare; 2. information circulation and sharing, and trust building among marginal communities; 3. linguistic and cultural adaptation of communication models. 3. Integrate project-based qualitative methods used in the medical field with the long-term orientated ethnographic methods and linguistic approaches from the humanities, to better understand the socio-cultural implications of digital technologies in healthcare in LMICs. In particular, the project aims at integrating ethnographic and linguistic research methods with Intervention Mapping (IM), a method commonly used in health research to develop health behaviour change interventions. IM is an iterative and cumulative process that consists of the following steps: (1) needs assessment; (2) specifying behavioural change to result from the intervention; (3) designing the intervention; (4) producing and refining the intervention content; (5) planning intervention implementation and (6) planning intervention evaluation. This project will focus on steps 1-4 and will bring a cultural, linguistic and sociological perspective to these phases.

GCRF: RECAP - Research capacity building and knowledge generation to support preparedness and response to humanitarian crises and epidemics

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

RECAP's vision is to strengthen research capacity and capability to generate knowledge on how to improve decision-making and accountability to help support preparedness and response to humanitarian crises and epidemics. RECAP will focus on the sectors of health and protection where synergies are currently underdeveloped, through 6 interconnected, interdisciplinary research Objectives/work-packages along with 4 capacity and capability building Objectives. The 6 research Objectives/work packages will also act as platforms for capacity building through applied research methods training. The 6 research objectives are to: 1. Develop, pilot and evaluate the application of improved metrics for agency and sector performance in humanitarian settings. 2. Develop and apply new modelling techniques for epidemic preparedness and response to guide real-time decision-making. 3. Develop and apply economic methods to inform decision-making in humanitarian settings. 4. Evaluate the current use of data and evidence in operational decision-making and the potential for innovative decision-making approaches and technologies in humanitarian settings. 5. Explore accountability frameworks and enforcement mechanisms in humanitarian settings. 6. Explore and support ethical preparedness and provision in humanitarian crises. The 4 capacity and capability building Objectives are: 7. Training on specific research methods linked to the research conducted in RECAP. 8. Institutional capacity building for a sustainable and supportive research environment. 9. Supporting individual researcher capability and career progression. 10. Building UK capability in research on health and protection in humanitarian crises.
