Research Agenda

We are building a global resource of data collected for the treatment of Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL). The VL Research Agenda explores key scientific questions that could be answered by this VL data platform to enhance care for VL patients and affected communities. The document has been created by the global VL research community.

The Infectious Diseases Data Observatory (IDDO) is working with the global VL research community and stakeholders to assemble a data platform, which aims to collate individual patient data (IPD) from VL clinical and epidemiological studies to deliver robust science and address knowledge gaps. Read the VL Research Rationale

The VL Research Agenda sets the priorities for research to be undertaken on the VL data platform, as presented by research community needs in endemic regions. These questions are specifically those that can be addressed by using individual patient data from scattered clinical trials around the world that have been pooled and standardised on the VL data platform.

The VL Research Agenda is a live document and feedback is always welcome. If you wish to comment on the document, please contact us at vl@iddo.org

The VL Research Agenda will be reviewed by the VL Scientific Advisory Committee annually.
