SDH-Net aims to strengthen and link research capacities for health and its social determinants in African and Latin American low and middle income countries, in close collaboration with European partners. The Network is carried out by a consortium based on clusters of existing networks of public health institutions from Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, South Africa, Tanzania and Kenya.
SDH-Net database is developed using the Health Research Web (http://www.healthresearchweb.org) platform. The site is an interactive platform that facilitates the collection of essential information characterizing research systems for health. The SDH-Net databaseprovides factual information on research governance and coordination, research financing, partnerships, human resources as well as research production, utilization, ethics review, and monitoring. Information on all consortium partner countries is also available.
