South-East Asia regional office/research and training in tropical diseases - small grants programme 2004-2010
AbstractCommunicable diseases remain an important cause of morbidity and mortality, which require constant updating of knowledge and evidence through research. To fill in these knowledge gaps, the South-East Asia Regional Office/Research and Training in Tropical Diseases Joint Small Grants Programme (SGP) was initiated in 2004 by WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia (SEARO) in collaboration with the UNICEF/UNDP/World Bank/WHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR). This programme aims at facilitating and strengthening control-oriented operational research in tropical and communicable diseases and developing capacity among the young scientists in Member States of the South-East Asia Region. The key findings of 38 such projects are documented in this publication. It is hoped that the publication proves useful, interesting and informative for the Member States.
