Work Package 3 - Gaps in Research

Leader Dr Matilde Leonardi, INNCB Milan (IT) Deputy Leader Dr Giorgio Tamburlini, BURLO (IT) WP Gaps will identify a range of important clinical and public health problems that affect children's health but that are under-served by the contemporary mix of commissioned research on child health (WHO 2008). For us, importance is measured in two ways, first at a whole population level, giving rise to measures like burden of disease (Valent et al. 2006; Lopez et al, 2006); second as impacts on the most vulnerable groups of children – those described a marginalized ( Zoon 2001, for example).
