 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The major causes of poor health are rooted in our societies. Governments are encouraged to lead global action on the social determinants of health with the aim of achieving health equity. This requires setting-specific, timely and relevant evidence on the relationship between determinants and outcomes which is yet limited, especially in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This calls for research on social determinants of health and demands capacity-building activities to enable such research. INTREC collaboration action is envisioned to address health inequities in LMICs of Africa and Asia by developing sustainable capacity for research for health and its social determinants, and by facilitating translation of research findings into policy and practice in both regions. INTREC also advocates for gender equity in health research by promoting women scientists. INTREC activities will cover three African (Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania) and four Asian countries (Indonesia, Viet Nam, Bangladesh, India) and will be concentrated in two training centres in Ghana and Indonesia. The centers are to become focal points for research on social determinants of health in LMICs, thus enabling extensive South-South and North-South networks and research cooperation. INTREC approach to capacity-building is holistic and includes both, providing state-of-the-art region-specific training for young researchers, and educating decision-makers on social determinants of health. The work will be carried by a strong Consortium team of five university-based centres in Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, the United States of America and Indonesia and by one research network of demographic surveillance sites in LMICs with headquarters in Ghana (INDEPTH). INTREC approach will be evaluated at the end of a 3,5-year period. Based on the results of this evaluation, a conceptual framework on how to build sustainable capacity for research on health and its social determinants that could be applied in other LMICs will be developed.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Vast differences in health status exist particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). To overcome these differences, the link between social determinants of health (SDH) and health outcomes needs to be determined.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Existing information is currently limited in scope and covers issues such as infectious diseases and younger populations.

The EU-funded project 'Indepth training and research centres of excellence' (http://www.intrec.info (INTREC)) was initiated to address this information gap in Africa and Asia.

INTREC will work on building the capacity of seven LMICs to carry out accurate research on SDH in LMICs for all age groups.The INTREC International Advisory Group (IAG) was established and five members from Belgium, Indonesia, Malaysia, the United States and Zimbabwe were recruited.

The INTREC consortium recruited social scientists in Bangladesh, Ghana, India, Indonesia, South Africa, Tanzania and Vietnam after establishing priority research areas.

The researchers were trained to produce standardised-format country reports that were subsequently used to develop the INTREC curriculum draft.

Besides presenting the country reports, they also published a paper in Global Health Action on research capacity building in SDH.A project website was set up and two INTREC training centres were launched in Ghana and Indonesia..

As a result of a finalised curriculum draft, production of individual learning blocks has begun that include courses and workshops.

In addition, the timetable for planned activities has also been agreed.

Future activities will also include setting up more training centres, increasing participation of women researchers, and the wide dissemination of project activities through presentations and publications.

Ultimately, project activities will lead to the development of a conceptual framework for sustainably carrying out research on SDH in LMICs.

INTREC centres and researchers will provide a solid foundation for broader research on SDH and networking.

Dissemination will facilitate the implementation of research outcomes in evidence-based policymaking.
