Creating Partnerships In Global Health Research Helps Build Bridges Among Stakeholders
“…To create partnerships with communities in global health research, we need to build bridges so that the process of mutual learning can take place. The community will have the opportunity to share their perspectives about emerging technologies, and the research teams can listen and respond to their concerns. We build effective bridges by creating and sustaining quality relationships with our community partners. … When we build bridges in global health research, it is not just with communities, but will all of the diverse stakeholders in global health research,” Fil Randazzo, deputy director for the Discovery and Translational Science team of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Global Health Program, writes in the foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog (1/28).
