Led by a team based at icddr,b in Dhaka, Bangladesh, the aim is to drive and seek wider engagement with teams across the region to illustrate and promote the studies and research strategies, planned and underway as part of this global effort to respond. These initiatives seek to strengthen research capacity, promote and recognise locally-led health research, improve visibility of research teams and centres, and contribute to the science of sharing.


Here we attempt to bring together all the information, resources and updates being provided by all the Asian networks and pan-Asian organisations who work in health research.

The aim is to make it as easy as possible to find the right information, support and guidance, by connecting all the Asian initiatives together and making all the sources of reliable information and tools both accessible and discoverable.
