NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Respiratory Health (RESPIRE)

Supporting Platforms

The three ‘supporting platforms’ of RESPIRE increase the ability of our partners to plan, undertake and implement the findings of research in their countries.

The three supporting platforms will focus on

  • how to work with partners (‘Stakeholder Engagement and Governance’)
  • increasing the number of health professionals and researchers who are trained to undertake high quality research (‘Training and Capacity Development’) and
  • maximising the uses that research data can be put to in safe and secure ways (‘Methodology and Data Science’).

Platform I: Stakeholder Engagement & Governance

Leads: Devi Sridhar & Siân Williams

Platform II: Training & Capacity Development

Leads: Tabish Hazir & Igor Rudan

Platform III: Methodology & Data Science

Leads: John Norrie, Sanjay Juvekar & Shams El Arifeen
