Child Health and Nutrition Knowledge Network (CHNKN) is a novel initiative to assist in bringing together scientists and implementing bodies to discuss the current evidence and future requirements for global, regional and national child health and nutrition. It will assist young researchers to interact with established and senior researchers and peers from their region and beyond. It plans to develop interest groups within the network by assembling technical experts who share common areas of interest. The members of the CHNKN shall play critical role in stimulating discussion among the network community, contributing technically to analyzing and disseminating relevant knowledge and identifying gaps in the clinical and public health relevant issues that need further research.
Interaction among CHNKN members will be intellectually stimulating, will cross-fertilize ideas, give rise to innovations and generate large number of clinical and operational research questions. We expect CHNKN to stimulate the new generation researchers particularly in low and middle-income countries to imbibe the spirit of research in healthcare.
