Limited and scarce scientific research in a country is an obstacle to its development and the generation of alternative solutions to dynamic and changing public health priorities.

Strengthening applied research in middle income countries will lead to numerous benefits at different levels; from cultivating academic training, stimulating critical thinking and increasing self satisfaction and motivation of health practitioners to improving the effectiveness and efficiency of health systems.
