Jean McKendree

People here might be interested in the Tupumue project led from Kenya and Liverpool looking at non-communicable lung disease in children to look at burden and early life determinants and to develop participatory inter-disciplinary solutions

I particularly like this project because they have involved the social and humanities partners from the very beginning to help make sure that the project is community-led rather than researcher-led. You will never get change unless the target stakeholders are a part of the project and are on-board from the beginning.

(Disclosure: I was involved in the first year of the project to help organise the community consensus building meetings in Nairobi.)
