DESCRIPTION

Implementation research (IR) is the scientific study of barriers to and methods of promoting the systematic application of research findings in practice, including in public policies. IR explores the challenges that are faced when generalizing research findings "in the real world", such as in the fields of health care. The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines it as a form of research which "addresses implementation bottlenecks, identifies optimal approaches for a particular setting, and promotes the uptake of research findings: ultimately, it leads to improved health care and its delivery." (WHO, 2017).

Since 2015, Institut Pasteur de Tunis (IPT) is a Regional Training Center (RTC) for Health Research supported by Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) for the Eastern Mediterranen Region (EMR). As such, it has a mandate to improve research capacity skills of researchers in the region.   After the three first courses held in 2015, 2017 and 2018 with participants from six, eight and five countries respectively, RTC-IPT-EMR announces a call for participants for the 4rd Regional Course on Implementation Research. This new edition will take place in Hammamet (Tunisia) from the 1st to 4th October 2019.   This training course will be based on the French version Toolkit that was developed by the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) to strengthen implementation research (IR) capacities of individuals and institutions in low-and middle-income countries. This course will introduce participants to the concept of IR, tools and materials relevant to IR and facilitate the development of IR proposals applied to Infectious Diseases' Programs.

COURSE CONTENT

The training will be delivered through lectures, plenary discussion, group discussion and problem analysis through the following modules:

·         Introduction to IR
·         Contextualizing IR issues
·         Developing an implementation research proposal.
·         Planning to execute implementation research.
·         Analyzing implementation research data.
·         Dissemination of Results and Research Findings.
·         Monitoring and Evaluation

Upon selection, applicants have to bring their own IR proposal on IDPs they plan to implement. Health Research proposals are not eligible.

APPLICATION REQUIRMENT

1/Complete application form (attached) including the description of the proposed research. Please note that the description of proposed research section is important for the final selection of participants and that all proposed project proposals have to be on IR applied to IDPs. 2/Full CV 3/Motivation letter indicating why the applicant is applying for the training and how her/his participation in the course will advance the progression of the proposed project. 4/Recommendation letter certifying the competency of the applicant and how attending this course will help her/him to progress the proposed project. 5/Scanned copy of the first page of the passport (for international participants*) All documents must be complete and have to be sent to: rtc.ipt@pasteur.utm.tn

على إثر نشر مقال صحفي اليوم بتاريخ 30 ماي 2019 على بعض الصحف الإلكترونية تضمن بعض المعلومات مفادها صدور حكم غيابي بـ 5 سنوات سجن على " المدير السابق لمعهد باستور منصف العمدوني " من أجل التدليس ، فإن إدارة المعهد تكذب فحوى هذا المقال لما تضمنه من معلومات خاطئة و غير صحيحة بالمرة بإعتبار أن قضية التدليس التي تفطن إليها المعهد في السنوات الأخيرة قد شملت السيد منصف العمدوني الذي كان يشغل خطة عامل بالمعهد سابقا و ليس المدير العام السابق للمعهد .

Suite à la publication d'un article de presse le 30 mai 2019, dans certains journaux électroniques contenant des informations selon lesquelles une peine de cinq ans d'emprisonnement a été infligée à "l'ancien directeur de l'Institut Pasteur, Moncef Amdouni" pour fraude, l’Institut Pasteur de Tunis (IPT) indique que le contenu de cet article est mensonger. L’IPT dément cette information et précise que cette affaire concerne une fraude réalisée par un ancien ouvrier de l’Institut Pasteur de Tunis, et nullement un ancien Directeur Général de l’Institut.
L’IPT se réserve le droit d’entamer les poursuites judiciaires nécessaires
