To celebrate World Health Day The Global Health Network is hosting a week of e-seminars, e-workshops and interviews that will discuss the operational, methodological and capacity challenges that impede health research in LMICs, and how to overcome common barriers.

It is hoped that this initiative will inspire and inform early career researchers and healthcare workers from these regions to encourage them into running research studies of their own.

This should demonstrate how The Global Health Network facilitates knowledge sharing, capacity building and clinical research process improvement and raise awareness and use of this powerful resource that is enabling more and better research data to be generated by, for and in, low resource settings.
