The time from producing an effective intervention to getting it delivered on the ground is all too often unacceptably slow. LSTM is ideally placed to work with relevant counterparts to define, evaluate and support the implementation of effective interventions across a broad range of disease areas including NTDs; Maternal and Child Health; TB & Lung Health; Malaria and other Vector Borne Diseases and Resistance Management.
An example of one of our healthcare delivery programmes is COUNTDOWN.
Funded by DFID, COUNTDOWN will trial and evaluate new approaches to drug distribution, which target those who are currently overlooked and excluded. It will also examine how NTD programmes can be better integrated into broader health system responses.
