Title of Collaborative Activity:

Collaborative for Enhancing Emergency Care Research in LMICs (CLEER)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Fogarty International Center (FIC) hosted a meeting and writer’s workshop titled “Collaborative for Enhancing Emergency Care Research in LMICs (CLEER)” in 2017. The workshop brought together researchers from high-income countries (HICs) and low-and middle-income countries (LMICs) to define challenges and propose solutions for conducting research in acute care settings in LMICs, including but not limited to (i) data definitions, collection, analysis, comparison and solutions including the use of technology and (ii) research ethics. At the conclusion of the workshop, six manuscripts were started by working groups and written primarily in 2018 for publication in the scientific journal, BMJ Global Health. The manuscripts are entering the final stages of submission/review for publication and will be disseminated at relevant conferences, meetings, and panel discussions.
