General

Capacity building of national institutes to conduct clinical, operational, entomological and health systems research in order to conduct and support evidence-informed health policymaking for improved population health in Cambodia. Our partners are the Sihanouk Hospital Centre of Hope (SHCH), the National Centre for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control (CNM), the National Centre for HIV/AIDS, Dermatology and STD Control (NCHADS), and the National Institute of Public Health (NIPH). The contribution of the local partners and ITM will focus on four domains: (1) improved management of infectious diseases; (2) adapted malaria elimination strategy and improved control of other vector-borne diseases; (3) elimination strategy of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and syphilis; and (4) health systems and policy research, governance and knowledge management.
