Who we are

We are working on a strategy to underpin the Population Health Theme, and would like this to be as collaborative as possible, including input from the early- and mid-career researchers who may potentially be aligned to the Population Health Theme and who we see as potential future leaders.

What we (will) do

  • Through shared learning, training and development, support an emerging pipeline of world-leading Malawian research leaders in population health methodologies
  • Support outstanding collaborative funding applications to deliver world-leading population health research
  • Contribute to the strategic direction of MLW by advocating for emphasis on Population Health strategic appointments, resourcing, and infrastructure
  • Develop and advance MLW and global expertise in population health research methods relevant to low-income settings, particularly:

– High resolution surveillance, epidemiology, and geospatial statistics to inform better-targeted delivery of health interventions

– Randomised trial designs, implementation and analysis methods to rapidly evaluate promising health interventions

– Health economics, policy and implementation science to scale-up interventions and measure impact
