Said about ENRECA
Professor Susan Whyte, Department of Anthropology, University of Copenhagen: "It can be difficult to find the time and resources for knowledge sharing. To this end, the ENRECA Health Network is very valuable."
Danida: "Effective communication and strategic use of communication platforms have ensured that research results have had influence on policy-making [...] Knowledge management and sharing, including with fellow researchers in Denmark, creates synergy between current projects and new initiatives." 'Lessons Learned from Danida supported Research for Health in Development: 8 Case Stories' (2010).
Professor Ib Bygbjerg, Institute for International Health, Immunology and Microbiology, University of Copenhagen: "ENRECA Health has since its beginning been at the forefront with regards to addressing topics such as research ethics, interdisciplinary PhD courses and introducing new research areas such as health care systems in Africa in 1998 or ‘double burden of diseases' and Non-communicable diseases in 2001, 10 years before the UN General Assembly 'spotted' NCD. ENRECA Health has also worked systematically with more traditional areas such as Mother and child health, malnutrition, malaria, HIV, TB. ENRECA has addressed many of the advances in health technology such as ACT, ART, point of care diagnostics, vaccinology, etc. In the future, there will be a strong need for innovation in the areas of advocacy, access, availability, and adherence.
