Recognition in UK Collaborative on Development Sciences Top 20 Impact Studies

The SCHI team were excited to see the launch of the UK Collaborative on Development Sciences Top 20 impact studies today, which features the work of the University of Strathclyde and University of Malawi teams over the last 10 years. The focus of the report is the continued study of diarrhoeal disease in under fives, and the work we have undertaken with the Ministry of Health to try to align policy frameworks and strategies for combatting diarrhoeal diseases. The work was selected from the 6,975 case studies submitted to the Research Excellence Framework 2014, and we are delighted to have the research and impact of the work in Malawi recognised on this platform. For access to both the report and full case study click here.

Note: UKCDS is a group of 14 UK government departments and research funders working in international development
