Strong turnout for roundtable discussion on GloPID-R coordinated funding Initiative
A roundtable to continue our work on a GloPID-R Platform for Coordinated Funding Calls was held on September 4, 2023.
Much interest has been expressed in this new GloPID-R activity with 96% of 27 respondents to a recent survey indicating their organizations’ interest in learning more about this far-reaching project.
The event, which was attended by 35 participants from member and observer organizations, included presentations and break-out group discussions on themes such as:
- Improving surveillance and data quality/data sharing, risk/threat prediction
- Supporting collaboration and networks across trial sites in LMICs
- Clinical trial capacity strengthening and training, LMIC leadership, institutional infrastructure
- Preparedness research for a specific disease or virus family or transmission route
Thanks to the enthusiastic contributions of the participants and the rich exchanges, the information gathered at the roundtable will be used to prepare a proposal for discussion at the GloPID-R General Assembly in São Paulo on October 24 and 25.
