ESSENCE on Health Research

ESSENCE on Health Research logoESSENCE on Health Research, hosted at the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR), is an initiative that allows donors and funders to identify synergies, establish coherence and increase the value of resources and action for health research. Fogarty is a member, and the Center for Global Health Studies (CGHS) serves as co-chair of the steering committee.

ESSENCE on Health Research has proposed a mechanism for funders to review their investments so they can collaboratively identify and fill gaps, with details posted on the project's website. The site also offers good practice documents about working in low-resource settings.
