|Authors:||World Health Organization, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean|
|Abstract:||Operational research is crucial for identifying ways to increase access to timely diagnosis and effective treatment. It involves the evaluation of programme implementation, leading to improved policy-making, better design and operation of health systems, and more efficient methods of service delivery. The Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean supports operational research in tropical and other diseases through the UNICEF/UNDP/World Bank/WHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) supported Small Grants Scheme. The scheme encourages collaboration between national control programmes and researchers from academia. The aim of the series is to disseminate the results of the operational research projects supported by the scheme with the ultimate goal that they are translated into the policies and practices of national control programmes|
