NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Respiratory Health (RESPIRE)

Our Projects

RESPIRE projects cover work across all our partner countries, in both acute and chronic conditions affecting adults and children.

Summary of RESPIRE projects across Bangladesh, India, Malaysia and Pakistan

RESPIRE projects have been funded through a competitive review process, including external peer review.  Projects have been proposed by partners in Bangladesh, India, Malaysia and Pakistan to be responsive to the local needs. In each country, therefore, there is a different balance of research across acute and chronic conditions, and working primarily with adults or children.
