Study Group ideas

Study Groups

WWARN facilitates several collaborative Study Groups to undertake pooled analyses of data from the WWARN Data Centre. The groups work across disciplines to answer specific research questions related to malaria drug resistance and drug efficacy. 

Pooling data sets from multiple studies increases sample sizes, so that trends or sub-population effects can be identified with greater certainty. By working together and combining data from different regions, we can improve the understanding of resistance and strengthen efforts to control and eventually eliminate malaria. Each of our Study Groups are led by a coordinator.
