PRIME is a consortium of research institutions and Ministries of Health in five countries in Asia and Africa (Ethiopia, India, Nepal, South Africa & Uganda), with partners in the UK and the World Health Organization (WHO). PRIME is supported by the UK government’s Department for International Development (DFID), and is a six year programme which was launched in May 2011.
I am a research officer at PRIME. I oversee the submission of ethics protocols (revision, amendments and reporting), planning and research activities currently taking place through PRIME in addition to other research initiatives.
In order to encourage the uptake of its research, PRIME keeps a track of mental health related conferences that are coming up.
