Strengthen research capacity by developing and supporting "Communities of Practice" that are relevant to local needs to guide, advance and sustain a robust research environment. In this way, enabling lasting research capacity in challenging settings will help to create better capabilities to fight enduring and emerging threats.
- Global health emergencies produce devastating consequences especially in LMICs
- The role of international organisations and funders in response to emergencies, by issuing protocols and recommendations, is vital but can be disconnected from the local realities
- Appropiate response to an emergency requires local ownership of evidence and public policies that arise from a strong local research culture
- LMICs such as Brazil, still have an unmet need for research training, with incredibly strong local and regional expertise apt to share and deliver these learning experiences. The support to enable such opportunities is lacking
