Wellcome is a global charitable foundation that funds research to tackle the biggest health challenges facing humanity. Understanding the sources of infectious disease and drivers of escalation, is a key focus area. Wellcome seek to hear from the global research, healthcare, and policy community to guide their funding plans to ensure that research happens equitably across the world and that the evidence is relevant, accessible and can be taken up to change health outcomes everywhere.
The Global Health Network and Wellcome are launching a global survey to gather your perspectives on the research priorities in this area. Our aim is to gain a comprehensive understanding of the most pressing research needs and to form a consensus among different sectors, including human and animal health.
You are invited to take this short survey as it will be a powerful mechanism to contribute to this consensus seeking objective. In the survey you will be asked if you are interested in attending an in-person workshop to discuss the findings of the survey and form consensus. Workshops will be co-hosted by The Global Health Network Centres in Africa, Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) in collaboration with regional partners, as survey results will be considered at a regional level.
Your contribution will be vital in determining a global perspective on research and development priorities surrounding sources and drivers of escalating (or at risk of escalating) infectious diseases. It will also have the potential to guide where funding should be targeted across different areas. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.
Take the survey:
What Research on Sources and Drivers of Escalating Infectious Disease Threats should be Prioritised for Funding?
This survey is also available in French, Spanish and Portuguese, please see below links.
Quelles recherches sur les sources et les moteurs de l'escalade des menaces de maladies infectieuses devraient être financées en priorité?
Fuentes y causas de las enfermedades infecciosas: ¿cuáles deberían ser las prioridades en investigación para recibir financiamiento?
Que pesquisas sobre fontes e disparadores de ameaças crescentes de doenças infecciosas devem ser priorizadas para financiamento
If you know someone who would have some perspectives or insights to share about funding priorities for infectious disease sources and drivers please could you kindly share this with them as well as to your networks.
We greatly appreciate your time, contribution, and engagement.
