Skills for Health Research in Low and Middle Income Countries: Household and Survey-Based Research

March 9, 2016

Many salient global health research questions require leaving the clinic - to get population-based samples, to interview people’s experience who have limited health care access, to gather environmental exposure data, to assess non-clinical health issues, and so on. Conducting health based survey research in community-dwelling populations internationally and especially in lower resourced settings can pose unique challenges. However, many of these challenges can be anticipated and addressed during study design and planning phases prior to implementation. Though contexts will vary significantly for each study and each location, there are some common skills that a global health researcher should strive to develop before they begin a new project overseas. 

Dr. Benjamin Capistrant from the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health in the School of Public Health will share some of the tools he has learned from his field work in Malawi and India to help those undertaking global health research outside of clinical settings avoid similar pitfalls and gather high-quality data. This session may be especially of interest students and faculty new to international research in the health sciences. More experienced international health researchers are also very welcome to share their own lessons learned. Please join us for a presentation followed by time for questions from participants.
