Knowledge for Development Consortium

Nuffield Centre for International Health and Development is part of the Knowledge for Development (K4D) programme consortium funded by the Department for International Development (DFID).

K4D aims to deliver two overlapping capabilities through the strategic integration of: an in-depth understanding of learning and knowledge processes in the development sector, and a broad network of substantive experience of development issues.  Since mid-2017, input from (current and former) PhD students and staff from Leeds Institute of Health Sciences and other research groups has resulted in publication of a number of thematic summaries (‘rapid reports’) concerning NCHID research themes such as WASH options; blood costs; behavioural change communication; contraceptive machine use in low- and middle-income countries, as well as health and nutrition-related accounts of Syria and Ethiopia.

More information can be obtained from K4D researcher Kerina Tull k.tull@leeds.ac.uk, or by watching the K4D YouTube videos.  These and other rapid reports can be downloaded from DFID Research for Development Outputs, @K4D_info and @NCIHD_Leeds.
