The current study builds upon a previous situation analysis of the extent to which grants from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) are being utilized to support operational research and implementation research (OR/IR) activities in recipient countries. The objective of this follow-up study was to identify approaches and pathways to implement an OR component into grants to the Global Fund, in four sub-Saharan African countries. Special focus was given to the Structured Operational Research and Training IniTiative (SORT IT).

In The   Lancet   Global   Health,   Alexandra   Hogan   and   colleagues1  report  the  findings  of  a  modelling  study  in  which  they  estimate  the  number  of  excess  deaths  from  HIV,  tuberculosis,  and  malaria  that  could  plausibly  occur   as   a   consequence   of   the   COVID-19   pandemic.  

Health sector spending and spending on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria, and development assistance for health: progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 3

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3 aims to “ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”. While a substantial effort has been made to quantify progress towards SDG3, less research has focused on tracking spending towards this goal. We used spending estimates to measure progress in financing the priority areas of SDG3, examine the association between outcomes and financing, and identify where resource gains are most needed to achieve the SDG3 indicators for which data are available.

NOT Open Access | Synthesis and efficacy of pyrvinium-inspired analogs against tuberculosis and malaria pathogens

Herein, we report the synthesis and evaluation of pyrvinium-based antimalarial and antitubercular compounds. Pyrvinium is an FDA approved drug for the treatment of pinworm infection, and it has been reported to have antiparasitic and antimicrobial activities. Pyrvinium contains quinoline core coupled with pyrrole. We replaced the pyrrole with various aryl or heteroaryl substituents to generate pyrvinium analogs.

Role of secondary level laboratories in strengthening quality at primary level health facilities’ laboratories: an innovative approach to ensure accurate HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria test results in resource-limited settings

Providing regular external quality assessment of primary level laboratories and timely feedback is crucial to ensure the reliability of testing capacity of the whole laboratory network.
