This is a community of researchers who are interested in supporting the generation of more and better evidence to drive improvements in health across the globe. Clinical research needs evidence-led improved methods. You can read more about the site here.
What is methodology Research? Methodology Research is research about the way we design, conduct, analyse, report and interpret research studies. Conducting methodology research research studies will generate evidence-led improvements in the way we design and run studies. Methodology Research is research on research!

The European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) supports collaborative research that accelerates the clinical development of new or improved medical interventions (drugs, vaccines, microbicides and diagnostics) to prevent or treat HIV, tuberculosis (TB), malaria and neglected infectious diseases in sub-Saharan Africa.
Under this background, the EDCTP partnered with The Global Health Network to develop a 'Knowledge Hub', which aims to facilitate and provide guidance on several topics related to clinical trials such as open access data sharing, data management, clinical trials protocols.
Mixed-methods approaches are gaining momentum in health research, and it is generally agreed that this is a positive development. In response to the challenges associated with integrating qualitative and quantitative data, The Global Health Network set up a group dedicated to supporting mixed-methods researchers. Please feel free to add your comments and join in discussions.
Epidemiological Study of Randomized Trials (ESORT) is led by a collaborative team of researchers at the Centre for Statistics in Medicine and the George Institute for Global Health, both at the University of Oxford. ESORT have kindly offered to share details of their study with The Global Health Network.
