CISMAC Annual Report 2017

In this year's annual report you can read about the large portfolio of CISMAC's research studies as well as other approaches to produce valuable research findings.


Overcoming research challenges

The research process can be arduous, but few projects are also beset by as many natural disasters as the Peanut butter - B12 study by CIH researcher, Tor Strand, and colleagues in Nepal.


Importance of Randomized Control Trials

Large-scale and long-term, RCTs can, in turn, generate further research projects and capacity-strengthening opportunities.
