Global Health Network

The Global Health Network is a free and open-access web-based facility that has been jointly developed by many global health research organisations.

The ethos of this initiative is that those working on trials in resource-limited settings can access each other, whatever their role and whatever disease they work on. Researchers can then work together to share guidance, tools and resources to improve trials and make them easier to conduct, thereby helping to address questions around diseases of poverty.

The website also provides guidance material, standard documents and training resources.

Process Map

The Process Map is the first digital toolkit designed to enable researchers anywhere in the world to initiate rigorous global health research studies.

The aim is to provide step-by-step guidance for each stage that needs to be considered when planning a new study. By providing an overview of what needs to be done, and then providing tools, resources, guidance and support for each task, this resource should speed up the study set up process and help you run a robust and high quality study.
