1 CALL FOR APPLICATIONS WHO/TDR International Postdoctoral Training Scheme at the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research University of Ghana, Legon-Accra Deadline for submission: 28 February 2016 (18:00 GMT) The Programme The Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR), University of Ghana, Legon, Ghana in collaboration with the Research and Development Division of the Ghana Health Service, and with funding support from the World Health Organization (through TDR, The Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases) has instituted an international postdoctoral training scheme in implementation research (IR) on infectious diseases of poverty. This type of research addresses health system related issues and bottlenecks that limit access to and scaling up of already proven health interventions. Postdoctoral training is an important step in a research career and provides opportunities to develop independent research themes, innovation and mentorship soon after completion of a doctorate degree. This postdoctoral programme is designed to develop a cadre of competent researchers to address health care implementation bottlenecks, identify optimal contextual approaches and promote the uptake of research findings in relation to controlling infectious diseases of poverty. TDR in partnership with NMIMR, University of Ghana, Legon, Ghana, and the Research and Development Division of the Ghana Health Service will provide postdoctoral training for nationals of Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) in implementation research; up to 6 postdoctoral fellowships are available in the first round of this scheme.

2 Priority thematic areas These thematic areas encompass research topics that aim to unravel the underlying factors contributing to inequity and low/poor access to health services and interventions in countries, in relation to TDR s mission to foster an effective research effort on infectious diseases of poverty and promote the translation of innovation to health impact. Applicants are invited to submit proposals to conduct research in any of the thematic areas listed below: 1. Effective prevention and control of communicable diseases Studies that are aimed at identifying and finding solutions to barriers limiting the effective implementation of national strategies for the control / elimination of malaria, TB, yaws, leprosy, Buruli ulcer, filariasis and other neglected tropical diseases. 2. Bridge the equity gap in geographical access to health services This thematic area encompasses research topics that aim to unravel the underlying factors that contribute to inequity including low/poor geographical access to health services and interventions in countries. It focuses especially on research efforts to identify options for accelerating the implementation of the community-based or other forms of health planning services that brings services closer to the uncovered populations, with a focus on the impact on the burden of infectious diseases of poverty. 3. Sustainable financing for health care delivery and financial protection for the poor Under this thematic area, research focus is to identify factors and issues relating to the effective implementation of comprehensive health financing strategies, strengthening public financial management and accountability systems in the health sector, and increasing the coverage and efficiency of national health insurance schemes to the poor, with a focus on the impact on the burden of infectious diseases of poverty. 4. Improve efficiency in governance and management of the health system This is aimed at reviewing the existing health sector leadership and management programmes with the view of providing evidence to support improved efficiency, with a focus on contributing to a decreased burden of infectious diseases of poverty. The health sector of many countries is undergoing reforms, including some levels of decentralization. Within this thematic area, studies that focus on understanding optimization of the health sector in a decentralized setting, especially with the well-performing national disease programmes or that will lead to deepening stakeholder (public, private and community) engagement(s) in the health system are highly encouraged. 5. Improve quality of health services delivery Gaps in quality health care delivery and patient safety persist in many LMICs and constitute barriers in their struggle to effectively address health needs of large segments of their populations. Research in this thematic area may include studies that evaluate the rational use of medicines, assessment of health facility, security and safety from the perspectives of health worker and clients, and studies that assess quality assurance programmes, with a focus on the infectious diseases of poverty. Research aimed at improving supply chains including measures to ensure commodity security and availability of medicines as well as improving response and management of epidemic emergencies and strengthening the referral system are other examples of studies under this theme.

3 Please note that all the research will be conducted in Ghana. However, the research areas must be centred in one of the thematic areas described above and also be of relevance to candidate s home country. Eligibility Applicants must be nationals of LMICs and should have completed within the last 18 months a PhD., MD/PhD or equivalent degree in public health disciplines relevant to control of infectious diseases of poverty.
