Who we are

COMDIS-HSD is a Research Programme Consortium funded by UK aid from the UK government. Working with partner NGOs in low and middle income countries, our aim is to improve the quality of prevention and care services for communicable diseases, as well as making these services easier for people to access, especially in underserved populations. We work closely with ministries of health and policymakers in our partner countries to design and carry out research that gives them the evidence they need to improve the way they deliver health services to their populations.

Our current partners include NGOs in: BangladeshNepal, Pakistan, Ethiopia and Swaziland.
