The seminar will discuss my observations about India’s tuberculosis epidemic, seen through the perspective of my training in infectious diseases and microbiology. I have spent the last year working with the National Institute of Research in Tuberculosis on a research project that aimed at using protoemic methods to identify drug-resistance in TB. I spent a month in Mumbai, at the P.D. Hinduja hospital with Dr Camilla Rodrigues and Dr Zarir Udwadia, both world authorities on the microbiology and clinical management, respectively, of MDR-TB. Lastly, I visted hospitals and laboratories in rural India to try to understand their challenges with the diagnosis and management of TB.

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. The research agenda especially in the context of maternal and child health, non-communicable diseases, etc. has been shifting and needs to shift from understanding the problem to actually intervening and testing solutions in health care systems. This Certificate course in Implementation Research Methods (eIR) course will improve the capacity of researchers to answer implementation research questions.
