Engagement for impact - Mishal Khan

Early engagement with end-users of research is, increasingly, seen as essential if findings are to be useful beyond the life of a study. For this Learning Lab, Mishal Khan presents an example from Pakistan that offers insight into the 'why' and the 'how' of such an approach.

The collaborative study – conducted by a team from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine  (LSHTM), the Pakistan National TB Control Programme and the Research Alliance for Advocacy and Development – involved stakeholders from the start of the research, to ensure buy-in and uptake from policy level to hospital level staff, clinicians and data managers.
