The CIDG aims to impact on policy and research in tropical diseases through the production of high quality, relevant, systematic reviews, and to lead developments in review quality improvement and effective dissemination of findings. Our reviews have impacted on guidance in malaria, HIV care delivery, TB diagnostic tests, typhoid vaccines, Crimea-Congo Haemorrhagic Fever, and health systems, and have led the methodological advances in qualitative syntheses used in guidance development.
At the CIDG editorial base we are committed to creating a positive working environment by recruiting and developing excellent staff. We work to ensure equality, diversity, and inclusion across the organization; to develop the leadership and management capabilities of our staff; and to actively support staff engagement and well-being.
