Leprosy Mailing List – November 28, 2017
Ref.: (LML) Workshop Operational Research, Kathmandu, February 2018
From: Nienke Veldhuiizen, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
I would be grateful if you share the following reminder of the workshop on operation research which the Leprosy Research Initiative (LRI) is planning in Kathmandu, Nepal during the week of February 5-9th, 2018 (see also our LML mail of November 5, 2017).
The deadline of application is coming up soon – and the LRI wishes to encourage teams to send in their application by November 30th latest – this Thursday.
The goal of this workshop is to train and establish mentoring of small teams of 3 to 4 persons in operational research methods. These teams would usually comprise staff members from: a local ILEP organisation, the national leprosy control programme, a local university and other partners such as an organisation of persons affected by leprosy, depending on the research question. Using presentations, group exercises, case studies, and the participants' own proposal outlines, the workshop will help participants understand the components and methods of writing a competitive study proposal and conducting operational research in leprosy. The outcome of this workshop will be a number of operational research proposals (Letter of Intent) which could be submitted for funding.
Teams from leprosy endemic South/southeast Asian countries are invited to apply for the course and the deadline for sending in an application is November 30th.
Further information as well as the application form are attached.
