Research Hubs are academic institutions or other organizations that carry out research related to reducing avoidable disaster deaths. Research ideas would be generated by Country Chapters or ADN networks, ensuring the research is relevant to the knowledge gaps or innovative initiatives identified by ADN Communities. The researchers involved should be Community members, but their research is carried out independently. Research Hubs could also carry out joint research projects with other Hubs or participate in research consortiums.
Currently, we have one research hub in India.
On 18 December 2019, the Avoidable Deaths Network’s (ADN) India Chapter was launched in Bhubaneswar, Odisha by Regional Coordinator for India, Mr. Dillip Pattanaik. Ms. Neelam Mkhijani, the Country Director Childfund, and Dr. Ambika Prasad Nanda, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Tata Steel were the guest of honour for this event.
The India Hub has a fully-fledged office, which can accommodate up to 15 Interns/ Research Fellows and a Case Station for Avoidable Snakebite Deaths.
