“Civil society organisations (CSOs) can play a key role in research and innovation for health and can help ensure its local relevance and better use.”
Based on the above-quoted conviction, the Council for Health Research and Development (COHRED) has been working to highlight the need for CSOs to be involved in research for health. COHRED notes that, in many low- and middle-income countries, CSOs are not systematically involved in the research for health, despite being well positioned to contribute in valuable ways. It is hoped that the discussions, the sharing of tools and stories, and the networking opportunities created can contribute to profiling the role of CSOs in research for health and to strengthening their capacity and voice in research for health.
