Research on the determinants of health in low and middle income countries is urgently needed, but conducting rigorous research is often very challenging in these settings. Challenges relate to both internal and external validity/generalizability of the research. In this set of talks, researchers describe issues related to developing strong in-country partnerships, study enrollment, measurement of sensitive constructs, and study design in diverse contexts, along with innovative solutions to address these challenges.
