FilaBavi and Dodalab HDSSs: Joint WHO/TDR -INDEPTH planning workshop held in Hanoi
The picture shows participants of Joint INDEPTH-WHO/TDR planning workshop on Health Systems Implementation Research (IR) in Hanoi, Vietnam. In view of extending capacity on implementation research across INDEPTH members, a training workshop that was initially scheduled for December 2016, was held in Hanoi from March 7-9 and hosted by Filabavi HDSS. Funded by WHO/TDR, the meeting was attended by the following member HDSSs (that had shown commitment and provided the relevant details): Kersa and Kilite Awlaelo (Ethiopia); Kombewa (Kenya), Vadu (India) and the hosts FilaBavi and Dodalab. This planning meeting provided the opportunity for colleagues from select INDEPTH member centres, TDR and INDEPTH to discuss the IR process and relevant tools available, review key research questions and the specific areas identified by participating centres and select a broad (or all-inclusive) programme implementation problem and develop an application for IR.
