Access to quality healthcare and education for all are essential elements underpinning national development as well as prerequisites for personal well-being. This makes it important to grasp the inequalities that still prevail in human and institutional capacity, including access to and use of research resources. The goals of fostering medical research in resource-constrained countries are to bring outstanding science to bear on their medical and health problems; invest in building the requisite medical and health research systems; develop an evidence base to inform policies and programmes, resource allocation, and health practice; enhance scientific processes, findings, explanation, and ‘discovery’ by drawing on local know-how; and gain sustained engagement with policymakers, senior managers, and community leaders.
