GHIN country teams developed common research questions relevant to their epidemics, whilst also adapting these to specific country contexts. This has led to the development of generic tools for concentrated and generalised epidemics which have been built on and improved by various country teams leaving scope for them to be adapted to country contexts. In this section you will find tools from Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine and Zambia    These have been improved over two phases of research. Some problems have emerged with some sections. GHIN has begun to document some of the lessons learned from the field and plan to document this over the coming months.
