There will be an ongoing prioritisation of work that generates evidence that is relevant to health policy decision making with research focussing on how science can best influence this process and continuing to work in close partnership with Ministries of Health across the region. Areas of disease focus will extend to other communicable diseases with an agenda driven by public health priorities in the region. Research priorities will remain those with most potential for direct impact on health outcomes as determined through ongoing interaction with Ministries of Health, the World Health Organization and other implementing partners.
