Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine

The Global Health Trials Unit (GHTU) based within Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM), is both responsible for the management of the DolPHIN 2 clinical trial and lead partner for the qualitative studies within the programme.

Founded in 1898, LSTM was the first institution in the world dedicated to research and teaching in the field of tropical medicine. As a registered charity, they work across the world to fulfil their mission of reducing the burden of sickness and mortality in disease endemic countries, through the delivery of effective interventions which improve health and are relevant to the poorest communities.

As well as attracting more than 600 students from around the world as a teaching institution, LSTM provides technical assistance as a major component of their mission, with consultancies to improve health systems in developing countries whilst helping to inform their teaching and research agendas.
