Global health researchers call for development of local research capacity within LMICs

A team of global health experts, including Harvard Pop Center faculty members Stephen Tollman and Kathleen Kahn, have authored a Comment in The Lancet Global Health that makes a case for why strengthening local research capacities within low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is needed to most effectively pinpoint issues, and develop and govern system-wide solutions. The team offers a detailed list of action steps that could be taken to ensure that such a shift in research capacity development be effectively implemented.
