Assignment Report to the Lao PDR
Topic: For the Council on Health Research for Development
Author(s): Dr Somsak Chunharas
Organization: Health Systems Research Institute, Thailand
Description: AfriHealth aims to increase public health capacity in and for Africa. It does this through generating an evidence-based and well-resourced network of institutions and individuals with sufficient scientific and political credibility, which will enable it to contribute substantially to the improvement of public health in Africa (see also http://shsph.up.ac.za/AfriHealth/). The work of AfriHealth formed the bases for a joint initiative of COHRED, AfriHealth, and USAID/SARA/AED, focusing on the development of guidelines for good partnerships in public health and health research capacity. The first outcome of this project is a publication with principles for good partnership. The intention is to expand this project and the discussion on principles for good partnership beyond Africa.
