    We are co-funding a new Regional Collaboration Award to support collaboration and exchange between IEA and AEA members.  We are planning to fund two one-off Awards of AU$2000 ($1000 contributed by each Association) to stimulate new collaborations or exchanges between AEA and IEA members, or to enhance existing relationships. The purpose is to share capacity and build collaborations between Australia/NZ and other countries in the region. Applications can be initiated by IEA or AEA members (including new members), and must involve a member from each Association, with one member based in a country outside of Australia or New Zealand (AEA’s main membership base).  The limited funds available are mainly intended to support or offset travel expenses, but any justified research-related expenses will be considered.  Please see the attached application details.  Two awards will be made ...

    Field trials of interventions against disease in low and middle income countries (LMICs) may be complex and expensive undertakings. Extensive preparation and planning is necessary for the conduct of a high quality trial, the results of which may be important in guiding public health practice.  Journals rarely have space to allow publication of more than a brief summary of the preparations necessary for the trial and of the procedures devised for the successful execution of the trial and the analysis of the results.  A consequence of this is that those planning field trials have few practical guidelines available to them, and investigators have to design a study, often with little access to the knowledge and experience that has been accumulated previously.
