WCAHRD is part of CAHRD which is a network co-ordinated by the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM). CAHRD brings together individuals, disciplines and organisations to develop practical solutions to health needs. In particular CAHRD will work with resource limited nations to transform health systems and improve the health of low income populations
CAHRD is about developing practical solutions to health needs, including operational, implementation, and health systems research giving Warwick the opportunity to widen its participation in the International Health, (IH) field. In particular CAHRD will work with resource poor nations to deliver its objectives.
CAHRD will harness diverse areas of expertise to help transform health systems and improve the health of low and middle income populations. This will involve:
- Providing and promoting high quality education and training.
- Conducting first-class research and disseminating the results of that research.
- Developing systems and technologies for health care and assisting in their transfer and management.
CAHRD includes jointly funded academic posts between LSTM and UoW, developing research collaborations between WMS and LSTM and within both institutions, building on their respective strengths in applied health research and delivery.
The intention is to ensure productive interactions between Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, SLS, Statistics, WBS, WMG, WMS and WSBC enabling appropriate consultancy services to be provided. This cooperation in research will facilitate further innovative programmes, enhancing public health practice and outcomes. Education will be an implicit part of this initiative because IH relies on partnerships in resource-poor settings, and in return partners require contributions to capacity development.
Among these collaborations is a strategic partnership between the University of Warwick and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine Recent News: CAHRD welcomes the new joint appointments between LSTM and University of Warwick in Diagnostics, Evidence Synthesis, Mathematics, and Neglected Tropical Diseases and Economics, which have recently been made and looks forward to furthering our multi-disciplinary approach to applied health research and delivery.
