Through a grant from DBT/Wellcome Trust India Alliance, IPH Bengaluru launched the Center for Training Research & Innovation in Tribal Health (CTRITH) with a focus on research and action on Adivasi health in southern Karnataka. The centre has established collaboration with the Chamarajanagar Institute of Medical Sciences (CIMS) and with NGOs to expand research and action on various aspects of Adivasi health.

As part of this long-term collaboration, CIMS is organising CME on Tribal Health titled “TRIBAL HEALTH – Bridging the Gap”. IPH Bengaluru & Scheduled Tribes Welfare Department are collaborating with CIMS in this two-day event. We are also working closely with the Karnataka Moola Adivasi Vedika & Jilla Budakattu Girijana Abhivruddhi Sangha at the state & district level respectively to ensure meaningful community engagement.

CIMS has obtained 4 CME credit hours for this event. On behalf of CIMS, we welcome teaching staff & faculty of medical college community medicine/other departments, research scholars interested in tribal health, post-graduate students/interns/under-grads with an interest in tribal health & NGO representatives to register and join us.

In this Certificate course in Implementation Research Methods (eIR) course, There is a need to understand implementation in the real-world context. There are many evidence-based interventions to improve health that have not been effectively delivered.
