SPARKS is an international interdisciplinary research network using TB as a tracer for poverty-related diseases with prominent social determinants and consequences. SPARKS Network members are located all over the world and come from 22 different countries and 27 organisations. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining the network.
Members have developed a wealth of experience in identifying the mechanisms which shape the relationship between diseases and poverty, resulting in the development of social protection interventions in low- and middle-income settings. As SPARKS expand its research base, a growing body of evidence indicates that gaps in social protection negatively impacts recovery from a range of health conditions far beyond TB.
