Determining The Right Questions For Global Health Research

“Asking the right questions is the first step to generating the ‘downstream’ evidence needed for the implementation of health policies and practices, as my colleague E. Callie Raulfs-Wang described in her March 12 blog,” Kristina Gryboski, technical adviser for the USAID Child Survival and Health Grants Program, writes in a post in USAID’s “IMPACTblog,” as part of the Global Health Research & Development Blog Series. “Partnerships facilitate operations research, or the testing of scalable solutions that overcome barriers to access, demand, and quality in real world settings,” she continues and highlights the Global Roadmap of the Child Survival Call to Action, USAID’s Child Survival and Health Grants Program (CSHGP), USAID’s “Report to Congress: Health-Related Research and Development Strategy,” and the Global Maternal Health Conference that took place in Arusha, Tanzania, in January (3/19).
