What is Micro-Research?
The Research concept aims at improving health outcomes through small locally driven multidisciplinary teams developing and implementing research projects. This starts with the Research workshop that provides training and opportunities to do research especially in maternal and child health.
Borrowing from microfinance principles, Micro- research provides small grants to researchers. Only relevant, locally applicable community-based health research questions are eligible for funding.
The workshop will train up to 30 researchers to improve their practical applied research skills.
The workshop will run for 10 days from 4:00pm- 6:30pm.

1. Outstanding research skills from Canadian and MUST researchers

4. On-going support to do research through mentors
