Title: A Report on Forum 11: Equitable access: Research challenges for health in developing countries
Themes: Voices from stakeholders
Authors: Peterson Stearns, Beverly
Keywords: equitable access, Forum, Forum 11, innovation, meeting, poster, presentation, research
Year: 2008 Pages: 76
Abstract:
Global Forum for Health Research annual forums are a premier international event in health research for development. In 2007, Forum 11 took place in Beijing, People's Republic of China, bringing together some 600 key stakeholders to discuss research issues, best practices and gaps in securing equitable access. This Forum 11 report provides an overview of the key issues discussed, detailing ideas on the use of evidence in policy- and decision-making, encouraging innovation in research and promoting equity and human rights approaches to health research. Other central themes include: research priority setting, research capacity strengthening, possibilities with inter-sectoral collaboration, advocacy for more research and resources and communication of research results. The publication includes a user-friendly CD-ROM that features the final meeting documents.

Title: Research capacity for mental health in low- and middle-income countries: Results of a mapping project
Themes: Evidence on neglected research priorities
Authors: de Francisco, Andrés; Levav, Itzhak; Olifson, Sylvie; Saxena, Shekhar; Sharan, Pratap
Keywords: health research policy, low- and middle-income countries, mental health, research mapping
Year: 2007 Pages: 156
Abstract:
Although mental and neurological disorders comprise 13% of the global burden of disease and are a leading cause of disability worldwide, mental health remains among the most neglected, poorly resourced and underresearched areas in public health. This joint report (Global Forum for Health Research and World Health Organization) can be used to facilitate evidence-based decision-making in funding and priority setting for mental health research in LMICs. The report, based on a three-year study that mapped mental health research capacity in 114 LMICs in Africa, Asia and Latin America, is the first systematic research study of this scale. Its findings confirm the pressing need to improve research capacity in mental health in LMICs and fill research gaps that obstruct equity in health research. It also makes recommendations to review and strengthen mental health research management.

Title: Research issues in sexual and reproductive health in low- and middle-income countries
Spanish version:Aspectos de la investigación sobre la salud sexual y reproductiva en países con ingresos bajos e intermedios
Themes: Evidence on neglected research priorities
Authors: d'Arcangues, Catherine; de Francisco, Andrés; Dixon-Mueller, Ruth
Keywords: framework, gap, health, life-course, policy environment, priorities, reproductive, sexual
Year: 2007 Pages: 68
Abstract:
This joint report (Global Forum for Health Research and World Health Organization) identifies gaps, priorities and multi-disciplinary approaches in sexual and reproductive health (SRH) research, an area identified as the 'missing Millennium Development Goal'. Looking specifically at currently underserved populations in LMICs, this report is a solid contribution to efforts to develop an evidence base for improving the quality, availability and use of sexual and reproductive health information, products and services. It uses a rights-based, life-course framework for analysing and filling gaps in current knowledge of SRH problems as they are experienced by women, men and adolescent girls and boys. The report also raises essential research questions for policy-makers and programme managers to consider to create a favourable policy environment for advancements in SRH.
