Capacity development

Limited investments and inadequate infrastructure have contributed to a context in which few health researchers in low-income countries can thrive. Capacities to create, synthesize or use knowledge remain a major challenge in developing countries, with very few researchers able to effectively design, conduct, analyse and disseminate studies in the field of HPSR. Research methods also require much greater development. The Alliance has long been committed to strengthening the capacity not only of researchers to be more effective actors in HPSR, but also that of the other prominent research-users, with a particular focus on policy-makers.
