Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research
EQUATOR are delighted to announce a new collaboration with the Global Health Network, in recognition of our shared goals of capacity building, and in improving the conduct and reporting of health-related research worldwide.
A key area of collaboration will be in education and training in low and middle income countries. We will collaborate on further development of the GHN regional faculties – educational centres of excellence – providing on-the-ground support and training activities tailored to regional needs.
We will also work together to build on the GHN’s excellent online eLearning presence and IT infrastructure to create new accessible online certificated training courses. These will complement the existing EQUATOR toolkits, our comprehensive database of reporting guidelines, and other resources for authors, editors, healthcare librarians, and teachers currently available on the EQUATOR website.
This new collaboration represents an exciting opportunity for the EQUATOR Network to extend its activities into new regions. It particularly complements our existing partnership with the Pan American Health Organization, focused on raising research reporting standards in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Global Health Network is based at the Centre for Tropical Medicine, part of the Nuffield Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford.
