Tags (Keywords associated with the idea)

Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)?: Compelling Question (CQ)

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC:

A robust global T4 translation research community would be developed that would help translate proven-effective interventions for use in populations for a positive health impact

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC:

The NHLBI Global Health and Health Inequities Think Tanks identified T4 translation research as an important area that needs development in the very near future.


However, conducting high quality T4 research requires a research community focused in this area. Currently, very few researchers are working in this area. The T4 research community needs to be identified so capacity can be established for conducting T4 research. Incentives would need to be developed to maintain a robust global T4 research community.
