The Union launches a call for applicants for its 2019 SORT IT course in Sri Lanka

The Union’s Centre for Operational Research has launched a call for applications for the Asia Structured Operational Research and Training Initiative (SORT IT), 2019. The upcoming course will take place in Colombo, Sri Lanka, during February and October 2019. 

SORT IT courses are country specific training courses that take place across Asia and Africa in order to build the capacity of programme managers working in operational research (OR). This course is designed for health programme managers, project managers, and public health students who are actively involved in the running of a national, state or non-governmental organisation programme or major health institution, in a programme or disease specific field (TB, HIV, lung health, tobacco control, communicable or non-communicable diseases). The priority of this course is to develop the OR skills of managers working as part of, or in collaboration with national health programmes, as well as collaborating partners and NGOs.
