Aims of the group 

  • To exchange information about the processes, policies and regulatory frameworks within different countries and institutions   

  • To create a sense of community by providing a platform to discuss, and increase awareness of the challenges and successes involved in setting up and managing global health research projects.  

  • To share local work practices and new initiatives, so that there is collective learning across institutions and borders. 

  • Identify needs, concerns and problem solving for members working within the same arena. 

  • Provide space to build social relationships, create mutual respect and enable additional opportunities to network with each other.
