Dear Pieter Schreuder,



I'd be thankful if you could share the following information with the leprosy mailing list. The Leprosy Research Initiative (LRI, is planning an operational research workshop, in Nairobi, Kenya during the week of February 4th to 8th, 2019. 


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.


Further information as well as the application form are attached. The deadline to submit an application is on November 15th 2018.


For questions, please send me an e-mail at:


Best wishes,


Nienke Veldhuijzen
