University of Leeds, Nuffield Centre for International Health & Development
The Nuffield Centre for International Health and Development is a research and teaching unit of the Leeds Institute of Health Sciences, University of Leeds.
Our mission is to develop the capacity of health systems in lower-income countries, particularly in the public sector.
We are the coordinating partner for COMDIS-HSD, providing technical and administrative leadership for the programme.
We are also a World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre on research and capacity strengthening of health policy, governance and services.
Malaria Consortium Headquarters
Malaria Consortium International is based in London with field offices all over Africa and Asia.
We are one of the world’s leading non-profit organisations specialising in the prevention, control and treatment of malaria and other communicable diseases among vulnerable populations. Increasingly, we have found that our work on malaria can be effectively integrated with similar public health interventions for greater impact. We have therefore expanded our remit to include child health and neglected tropical disease interventions.
Our most recent research focuses on strengthening primary healthcare for neglected tropical diseases in Ethiopia.
Our completed COMDIS-HSD projects are:
- Assessing and addressing the barriers to IPTp uptake in Uganda
- Comparing ICCM in rural and peri-urban villages in Uganda
- Community Dialogue for prevention and control of neglected tropical diseases
- Supporting effective roll-out of dengue prevention and control guidelines in Myanmar
- Community case management of pneumonia in Zambia
