(LML) Invitation to LRI e-survey on Research Priorities



Leprosy Mailing List – April 19,  2018

Ref.:   (LML) Invitation to LRI e-survey on Research Priorities

From:  Nienke Veldhui,zen

Dear colleagues,


At the LRI (Leprosy Research Initiative), we are currently evaluating our research priorities and with this e-mail we would like to invite you to participate.

In this study, we are using a combination of key informant interviews, focus group discussions (FGD), an e-survey and finally we will use a so-called Delphi panel to rank the research topics according to their priority. The current invitation is for the e-survey.

We realize that some of you have already participated in other parts of this study. If so - you may still choose to participate in this e-survey. Moreover, we are distributing this e-survey via various ways and apologize if you may receive this invitation more than once.

We are hoping to reach many different stakeholders with this e-mail who are involved in leprosy care, control or research as well as persons affected by leprosy. You may also forward this invitation to others whom you think would be important to include.

Please note that you are only asked to complete the survey once.

In this e-survey, which will take approximately 10-15 minutes of your time, we would like to ask your opinion on how important different research topics are according to you. Furthermore, we would like to know if you think there are some important research topics missing from the list.

If you choose to participate, would you be so kind to complete the survey before May 15th?

You can use this link to access the e-survey:  Complete the survey

If you have any questions concerning this project or the e-survey, please contact Zahra Khazai at:

Your input is very valuable to this study and will contribute to a comprehensive list of current research priorities. We would like to thank you in advance for your contribution to this study!
