Who we areCOMDIS-HSD is a Research Programme Consortium funded by UK aid from the UK government. Working with partner NGOs in low and middle income countries, we carry out research and, using our findings, provide evidence to policymakers to help them improve the way they deliver health services to their populations. Together with our partners, 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.
Our current partners include NGOs in: Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Swaziland.
