New Collaborations

In 2005 ICROSS commenced a major study with the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. The study investigates the positive outcomes of children made vulnerable or orphaned by AIDS. ICROSS have also recently begun new and exciting collaborations with the Institute of Child Health in London through two studies, which will also look the socio economic impact of the growing number of children made orphans due to AIDS.

In 2006 we commence the largest Solar disinfection yet undertaken.
ICROSS Royal College of Surgeons completed the only clinical trials in Solar disinfection in areas of high mortality from Diarrhoea. The new EU funded study will involve 7 countries and take five years to complete. In 2008 we have extended our collaborative research with RCSI and are beginning a series of research partnerships with the Department of International Health, Tampere University, Finland.
