Preliminary Regional Stakeholder and Policy Analysis for the International Multidisciplinary Programme to Address Lung Health and TB in Africa (IMPALA)
16 August 2019

The International Multidisciplinary Programme to Address Lung Health and TB in Africa (IMPALA) is a four-year collaborative programme led by the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) and funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) that supports researchers, strengthens research institutions, and fills evidence gaps to address high-burden lung health issues in Africa, many of which lack sufficient funding and research evidence.

This report presents the findings from the first phase of the programme’s work; a preliminary, rapid analysis of regional lung health policies and programmes. Generally, high priority is placed on TB at the regional level, with little mention of other areas of lung health. Furthermore, regional policies referencing TB are typically grouped with HIV/AIDS and/or malaria, rather than being TB-specific.
