ADREU works to develop, evaluate and guide the implementation of novel technologies in the UK and in Low and Middle Income Countries. Our team has a background in global health research and so understands the diverse needs of resource-poor settings. Our global health studies are both developed and implemented with strong North-South partnerships to strengthen the impacts of our research.
Our global health research includes:
ADREU has conducted a study in collaboration with the Solomon Islands Ministry of Health and Medical Services and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) to look at the impact of mass drug administration with 1g azithromycin on the prevalence and antimicrobial resistance of sexually transmitted infections in antenatal clinic attendees.
In partnership with Universidad Internacional del Ecuador and Ministerio de Salud Publica, Santo Domingo de Los Colorados Province in Ecuador, and Professor Phillip Cooper (SGUL), ADREU is developing rapid diagnostic pathways for infectious diseases for vulnerable populations and scoping the impact of antimicrobial resistance.
In collaboration with in NIMR, Tanzania, UNC Project, Malawi, Hopital Central Yaounde, Cameroon, Institut Pasteur and Dr Angela Loyse (SGUL), ADREU is supporting the development and implementation of new or optimised diagnostic for HIV-related meningo-encephalitis.
