What we do
Our multi-sectoral team characterizes and evaluates the indirect and direct effects of social protection strategies on health, economic, and wider outcomes. With respect to TB, the archetypal disease of poverty, we aim to identify and address upstream and downstream social determinants at the individual, household, community, and governmental level, which influence risk of TB exposure, infection, disease, and cure.
We have recently formed working groups around specific areas of interest to help facilitate the work of the SPARKS network. Read more about the working groups here.
