Informing the Establishment of the WHO Global Observatory on Health Research and Development

Edited by: Taghreed Adam, John-Arne Røttingen and Marie-Paule Kieny

Return to Health Research Policy and Systems.

This Series is in response to a Call for Papers to inform the establishment of the WHO Global Observatory on Health Research and Development (R&D), with the objective of providing global stakeholders with up-to-date knowledge on methods, analyses and applications to draw from when developing future investment decisions for new health R&D.

The Series Editors declare no conflict of interest. Payment for publication of the Series articles was made by WHO through funding support for the establishment of the WHO Global R&D Observatory. The selection of papers to be included in this Series was made by an external committee of scientific experts. The Journal independently managed the peer-review for the Series papers.

The authors alone are responsible for the views expressed in this Series and they do not necessarily represent the views, decisions or policies of the World Health Organization.
