The Global Health Network is a digital platform to enable research by sharing tools, resources, knowledge and best practice and methods. It is a place where researchers come to receive rigorous guidance and training that is written by experts. This facility also creates partnerships through novel applications, such as site-finder.org. The platform allows researchers to work together. The result is a productive, interactive environment where research teams are accessing peers, generating research documents, acquiring technical expertise and developing new protocols in open collaboration to hasten and improve their, and importantly others, research outputs. Researchers, nurses, technicians and scientists working in LMIC countries have accessed The Global Health Network to share research methods, knowledge and processes, with many thousands of regular users. Impact evaluation is embedded and strong quantitative and qualitative data show how research teams are gaining from this and that their research is being enhanced.
Each of the websites on the Global Health Network has been established to create a specific online community of researchers who can build collaborations, develop documents, share resources and exchange information.
