The Global Health Network
The Global Health Network is a global open community of practice for health workers, research teams, and research organisations. It facilitates, supports, and enables research in diseases, places, and settings where evidence is lacking. It works by sharing research methods, know-how, and data between organisations, projects, regions, and roles, and delivers capacity building, support, and training to research teams and frontline health workers.
EDCTP Knowledge Hub
The platform is funded by the EDCTP2 programme under Horizon2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. Co-funding from the Swedish government is also gratefully acknowledged.
