Setting Research Priorities to Reduce Global Mortality From Childhood Diarrhea by 2015

To assist donors in understanding the potential of different research avenues to contribute to reducing the burden of disease and disability, the Child Health and Nutrition Research Initiative (CHNRI) of the Global Forum for Health Research recently developed a methodology that allows systematic listing and transparent scoring of many competing research options, thus exposing their strengths and weaknesses. The Department of Child and Adolescent Health and Development (CAH) of the World Health Organization is currently using the CHNRI methodology to develop research priority issues on the major causes of child deaths. In this paper, the authors present the results of this research priority-setting process applied by CAH for childhood diarrhoea. This article was published in PLoS Medicine.
