The Value of the Network and its Resource Centre

The INDEPTH Network, through its Resource & Training Centre in Accra (formerly Secretariat) and its various organs, creates value for all its stakeholders globally. With Member Centres, Working Groups, Funders and Partner Scientists, the Secretariat ensures that excellence, efficiency and impact are all privileged in its approaches and outputs. 

The Network boosts member centres and increases their potential for policy impact by strengthening their research capacity, ensuring excellent data management, increasing the global visibility of major health and demographic surveillance system (HDSS) analyses, and helping to secure funding for multi-centre studies.

The Network’s Resource & Training Centre works closely with Working Groups to ensure excellence and continuous improvement in scientific research, as well as helping to identify funding and streamlining the process of setting up multi-centre studies.

For Funding Partners, the Network ensures that studies are conducted effectively and efficiently and ensures excellent data harmonisation and management.

The INDEPTH Resource & Training Centre creates opportunities for Researchers to access top scientists in low and middle-income countries (LMICs), the best longitudinal data, and the best available health research and demographic platforms to showcase their research.

Policy Makers have access to cutting edge research that can provide them with evidenced options from which they can develop sound policies that hold promise to transform the lives of people living in countries with limited resources. The Resource & Training Centre has also helped to raise more than $60 million for multi-centre research.
