This analytical report presents global research priorities that were identified through a consultation process with experts and policymakers, and are intended to serve as guidance to researchers, donor groups and other stakeholders. The report consists of 33 topics presented in three sections: 1) Information to Support Policymaker Decisions, 2) Systems and Regions, and 3) Emerging Topics. Each of the 33 topics includes a description of why the research is needed, followed by several paragraphs describing specific activities that respond to that need. A short bulleted list thereafter highlights representative examples of critical activities from the broader set of proposed activities for each research topic.
