The first RFI report has been published by World Health Organisations Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (WHO TDR – http://www.who.int/tdr/news/2018/tdr-rfi-report-2018/en/). This is the first RFI report to be made public, and will serve as an example and template for future RFI reports.

We hope that this will encourage many other institutions and organisations to consider the RFI, and to work towards creating a better environment for fair and equitable global research in the future!

The RFI will roll out in 2018!

The RFI began its roll out in 2017, with several institutions from both Africa
and Europe showing interest, and beginning the writing of their RFI
reports. As of January 2018, we have received 4 RFI Reports, with
others still being in progress. In 2018, we hope to roll out the
initiative globally and introduce as many institutions as possible to
the RFI. We will be working hard with our associates and other partners to work towards this global implementation.

We hope that 2018 will be the year that the RFI can
begin to make a difference for all those partaking in global research
partnerships, and that we can begin to establish a standard of good
practice in research collaboration!
