The LIGHT Consortium: Centre for Capacity Research Objectives

The LIGHT Consortium: (Leaving no-one behInd: transforming Gendered pathways to Health for TB) is a six-year cross-disciplinary global health research programme funded by UK aid. It is led by LSTM and works with partners in Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Uganda and the UK.

LIGHT will deliver cross-disciplinary research across a consortium of partners to reduce the number of people affected by TB in sub-Saharan Africa. The research programme will enable and support global and national policy environments and health systems to improve sustainable, equitable access to quality TB services and medical products, to reduce TB mortality and morbidity. Through its work, LIGHT will generate new evidence, strengthen capacity, strategically engage with key stakeholders and monitor, evaluate, and share learning along the way.
