Columbia’s ICAP Partners with Health Ministry in Swaziland on New Health Research Training

Designing, conducting, and analyzing health-related research studies is an important priority in Swaziland, as is utilizing research data to inform decision-making in the health sector. Public health professionals, however, often have limited opportunity to gain these research skills. To address these gaps and help advance stronger, evidence-based health policy, ICAP just launched the Health Research Training Program (HRTP) in Swaziland in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The new program aims to strengthen the capacity of public health workers to conduct health research and interpret the findings. It also aims to establish an operational base for designing and implementing research activities and to promote networking among health researchers in Swaziland.
