TDR: Massive open online course (MOOC) on implementation research: infectious diseases of poverty

18 February, 2022

I think colleagues involved in Implementation research (IR) on infectious diseases of poverty may be interested in this course.

Copying information from TDR's newsletter below about the course that starts on 7 March which is in FRENCH, so perhaps this message could also be shared with HIFA-FR?: [*see note below]

Deadline to register: 28 February 2022

A new session of the TDR Massive Open Online Course on Implementation Research in French is being organized by TDR and the Institut de Santé Publique et Développement (ISED), University Cheikh Anta Diop, Dakar, Senegal, the sub-Regional Training Center supported by TDR for French-speaking countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

This free course is a step-by-step online training for public health researchers and decision-makers, disease control programme managers, academics and others, that focuses on how to design and demonstrate robust IR projects to improve control of infectious diseases of poverty and generate better health outcomes.

This course is open to all applicants. No technical or scientific background is required, though a health background will be an advantage.

Language: French with subtitles in Spanish, English and French.

The course starts on 7 March 2022.
