Fighting global diseases locally

Project leader/researcher:
Dr Nora Engel
Period: 2015-2018 (VENI grant, NWO)

I will be studying innovation processes of point-of-care diagnostics (mainly for TB and HIV) and the role that social science insights play therein. The aim of this project is to examine how innovators of point-of-care diagnostics and delivery programmes incorporate local settings and how social science notions of ‘attuning-to-local-contexts’ mediate global health innovations.
