This free online course – MOOC – for countries of the WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region* will introduce you to designing Implementation Research (IR) projects that make proven health interventions more widely available to people at risk of diseases of poverty.
Implementation research (IR) is important for designing strategies or solutions to overcome bottlenecks that prevent proven and innovative public health interventions from reaching the people who need them. This ensure that these interventions are used in a manner that results in the outcome for which they were intended. Such solutions include how to overcome barriers to adoption of drugs, diagnostics or preventive measures that improve health for people at risk of malaria, tuberculosis, NTDs or other infectious diseases. IR can help to ensure that health solutions reach the people who need them and are used in ways that generate intended results.
